Members of the police service have found themselves on the receiving end of criticism with many Kenyans disappointed with how officers of the law have been operating.
There have been lots of complaints from members of the public against police officers who have turned rogue against the same citizens they are supposed to protect.
A few days ago the Standard media exposed how Police officers in Nairobi's syokimau area have been minting millions from Kenyans through illegal arrests. According to the Exposee, the officers have been targeting Revellers and bar owners around the area.
The officers were part of an illegal crime Syndicate who arrest revelers and charge extort money from them without charging them. According to the report, the officers would make upto Ksh 1 Million within a week. The money would then be shared to the officers from the juniors to the seniors.
The Nairobi police boss has since acted on the matter with new reports revealing that a number of the senior members of the police who have been benefiting from the trade have received their transfer letters.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
