Confirming the incident, Akala Sub-County Police Commander, Linus Kioko said that the officers were nabbed while on duty and were taken to Akala police custody.
“Yes, one of our vehicles was involved in an accident and the officers who were driving has been arrested and will be taken to court on Tuesday to face charges,” Kennedy stated.
The accident left the shop attendant, Judith Atieno lying on the road with blood oozing from the mouth.
A witness, Arthur Oguk, said that the officers who were driving a police vehicle seemed drunk and hit Atieno from the front and sped away leaving her lying in a pool of blood.
Arthur claimed that the incident happened on Sunday morning adding that the officers were arrogant and refused to pay for the damages they caused.
He was driving an AP vehicle attached to the Burnt Forest area and was visibly drunk as seen in the video recorded by one of the passengers involved.
Residents called on the police body to dismiss the officers on grounds of irresponsibility.
"The officers should be arraigned and charged with irresponsibility," said Okuku one of the resident.
