A police officer is in custody on charges of attempted robbery with violence.

The officer, Denis Mokua Monda, stationed at Kwanza police station in Kitale, was flushed out of his hideout in Nairobi.

Mokua was arrested along with four other suspects.

According to a police report, the officer has been absconding from duty and he is also believed to have been aiding criminal gangs by hiring his firearm to them. The rogue officer is accused of coordinating a chain of criminal gangs within Nairobi area.

Mokua was also being pursued by a complainant over theft claims.

Following the operation, police also arrested four other suspects who were at a hideout within Mlolongo area. Two toy guns were recovered at the scene.

The officer together with other other suspects are expected to be charged with robbery with violence as investigations are complete.

The role of the police is to protect and defend. But in Kenya, police are often feared for their reputation of crime and violence against the most vulnerable in their communities.
