A police officer is being looked into after he was allegedly captured on camera stealing money from female security guards at a secondary school in Bomet County.According to reports, the assault happened on Monday at Kimulot High School in the Konoin constituency, and despite receiving a complaint, the local police allegedly did nothing.
The policeman was assigned to the school to oversee the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), which was administered by invigilators hired by the Kenya National Examination Council (Knec).
The police officer is shown entering a room where the instructors had stored their handbags and other personal belongings while wearing his full uniform and carrying what seems to be an AK-47 rifle, according to surveillance camera footage that has gone viral.
The officer is seen in the video footage taken from the school's CCTV cameras lounging on a sofa before he searches the handbags thought to belong to the female security guards.
The 1:37-minute video shows him taking something that appears to be money out of the bags and shoving it into the side pockets of his pants. Before leaving the room, the officer is seen putting the handbags back in their original locations.
It is reported that the instructors discovered their money was gone from the handbags they had left in the room after the exam paper had been given out on Monday.
