A Nakuru-based lawyer has sued three cops over alleged impunity in Nakuru County.
Mr Bernhard Kipkoech Ngetich testified before the High Court that the cops take part in corruption on the Nakuru-Kericho highway.
Mr Kipkoech, a one time member of the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) council and former-chairperson of the Rift Valley LSK branch, says the cops illegally arrest, detain and prosecute motorists along this busy route.
Mr Kipkoech argues that there are no installed road signs indicating the speed limit at the sections where police flag down matatu drivers and demand bribes while threatening to nab and prosecute them.
He adds that the areas have speed limit only at the start of climbing lanes with no other to tell motorists the end of the lane.
Mr Kipkoech argued that he had been stopped twice during his visits between Nakuru and Kericho.
He added that he was nabbed, tortured, held and charged in courts in Molo for driving his car above 50kmh.
