Alale police station OCPD accused of extorting more than sh500 from PSV operators

Alale police station OCPD accused of extorting more than sh500 from PSV operators.

Mr Lochakong urged the national police service inspector General to effect the transfer of the officers demanding bribes from motorists along these routes

“This is wrong. You cannot nab all the youths because they refused to pay bribes,” he said.

“We want traffic police officers along the road, not the OCPD. We are being told to pay more than Sh500 everyday,” they argue, referring to the Alale police division commander.

“OCPD Alale must be transferred since he takes all the matatus to the police station when we decline to pay bribes,” argued Joash Ondieki, a matatu operator.

Rajab Lodomo, the chairman of matatu association on that road, blamed the police of using force along the roads.

They said the drivers of 60 matatus had earlier paid Sh500 that the officers asked for.

“We recently paid Sh30,000 for 60 vehicles, each Sh500, and they are now asking more before the month ends. We have other bills and fuel prices are not our side. Can we know if the police receive their salaries,” Mr Lodomo said.
