SENIOR TRAFFIC POLICE OFFICERS PROBED OVER GRAFT

Daily Nation, 1st March 2011 

The anti-graft agency is investigating senior traffic police officers at the Coast over alleged corruption.

The officers, who are said to own multi-million properties, also operate several bank accounts and deposit thousands of shillings daily, according to a source.

The Kenya Anti-Corruption Commission is concerned that despite the officers earning between Sh30, 000 and Sh50, 000, they bank up to Sh100, 000 every two or three days.

“There is no other explanation for this. They must be engaging in corruption,” said the source.

KACC spokesman Nicholas Simani confirmed that several officers were being probed after the commission received complaints from various sources.

“We have received several corruption allegations against the officers and are trying to establish the truth of the matter,” Mr. Simani said.

According to our source, one of those under investigations is an officer based in Malindi.

Traffic police officers have been accused of demanding bribes from matatu operators.

“Sometimes they carry out swoops and round up our vehicles without the intention of charging us. We have to part with not less than Sh2, 000 to secure release of our vehicles,” said a matatu driver, who declined to be named.
