Corruption in Kenyan Police Stations his higher than an overdosed coke addict. We need to serialize and name all these crooks in uniform.
Kenyans are blackmailed into paying cops for access to different services such as speeding up service, expediting the proper legal procedure, and avoiding conflicts with the cops who are paid to serve.
Kenyans are fed up and are now exposing these corrupt servicemen and women who are only serving their selfish interests.
Makupa traffic Base is not a corruption-free zone, the most corrupt traffic Base in Kenya where motor vehicle owners have to pay 5K monthly to avoid being arrested by policemen.
Hi Cyprian thank you for highlighting the police issue on corruption. Please highlight on the issue of Marigat traffic police being led by inspector Beatrice and corporal Abdullahi every lorry pays 2000 every month within the town they have mpesa agent to withdraw money. They are harassing motorists me being the latest for failing to produce a driving license I had to pay 8000 after being arrested on Friday and fearing spending on cell till Monday. They literally refused to write me bond. My efforts to reach police commander within sub-county failed to please nyakundi expose this rot.
Even in Kikuyu Police station there is an M-pesa agent. Police come with money imefungwa kwa polythene bad zile zilikuwa zinafunga sukari ya 1/2kg and 1kg. Zike transparent. They ask the lady agent hapo karibu na canteen “niekee hiyo”. The lady counts for them. I saw this with my own eyes. Was also asked to withdraw a bribe there from my M-pesa. Bribe inakuwa shared mpaka a certain lady hapo niliskia ni traffic commander. Very sad state of affairs. They too collect bribe at Gitaru and just after Kikuyu pipes from matatus every morning and evening (morning from 8-10AM, evening from 2-4PM. Anyone can walk there ajionee. A very sorry state of affairs.
Hi Nyakundi, kindly conceal my identity. Sometime mid this year a colleague of mine was dropping me at TRM,a clearly marked drop-off point. A waria cop emerged from the darkness and insisted she had dropped off on the road. He said cameras had captured her and they had been instructed to charge 150k by the government on traffic offenders. He got into the car and we drove towards Kasarani police station. The lady (a widower) ended up giving him 10k.I paid 5k. That’s 15k. Otherwise if the car got into the station,only 150k would bail it out. May thunder strike that thief. To date she pains about it.
“Nyakundi when you talk about traffic corruption tembea hapa CBD,starting from retail market, railways, kencom, accra road ile corruption hukuwa hizo area wacha tu. Nilikuwa naokotea police hapa railways hawa watu huokota,talk of Nairobi area huko ndio mauano sasa..
“Webuye police station officers also have the same habit of soliciting bribes from residents.You withdraw via Mpesa”
