We are bold in presenting our news as we move to all Maa counties across the country.

After a security meeting between members of public and security agencies at Isinya town in June, several alleged ‘rogue’ officers have been moved.

A joint statement from the county police service and a rejoinder from the county commissioner, David Kipkemei, on Monday said three senior police officers adversely mentioned by public during the meeting have been moved.

Samson Okello is the AP County Commander and his counterpart regular County Police Commander is Kipkemoi Rop.

The communiqué says those who were moved from Isinya police station includes; the area OCS and his deputy.

Another officer commanding KAG police post, who is in the rank of an inspector was also removed and transferred elsewhere.


Other than the three senior officers, the communiqué says five other regular police officers were transferred on the recommendations of the regular and administration police commanders.

In Kitengela, the commanders said in the joint statement, a non-commissioned officer in the rank of a sergeant from regular police is on his way after he was adversely mentioned by bar owners as a lead ‘bribe taker’.

The officer, his seniors said, has been commanding a large force of officers he disburses daily to collect ‘protection’ money from bars and other business premises in Kitengela town.

Kajiado CC, Kipkemei, said the purge is ongoing in all the county towns of Loitokitok, Emali, Sultan Hamud, Kajiado, Mashuuru, Ngong, Ongata Rongai, and Kiserian.

“We have called on the members of public to report any police officer acting contrary to the laws to their seniors or directly to me. We want a clean force in this country because no one is above the law,” Kipkemei said.

OCPD, Paul Cheruyiot appealed to members of public who he claimed were complaining of the presence of a Kangaroo court in Mashuuru town to report to his office with the list of the suspect officers so he can take action.


Residents of Mashuuru have been reportedly complaining that the area OCS has been sitting in his Kangaroo court to settle theft and rape cases which at the end suspects are released together with evidences.

“Let those who have had issues with my officers come to me and make clear their issues. This is the reason I was posted here as Mashuuru OCPD. I cannot sit back and oversee injurious activities fronted by my officers without taking action,” said Cheruyiot.

During the Isinya security meeting, members of the public claimed some of the rogue police officers taking bribes from business people have stayed in their current stations for more than ten years, and could be also working in league with civilian criminals.

In Kitengela town, police officers reportedly visit bars and shops as early as 8pm to collect ‘protection’ money.

“They come with torches and stop at the door of the bar and demand to see the one selling beer outside. They ask for Sh200, and when given they go away. If you fail to give them, they will come back five minutes before closing time at 11 pm and wait outside,” said one bar operator on Monday.


She went on; “At 11pm on the dot, they force themselves in to the bar and arrest the person selling and take all the beers in crates.  They also arrest those found drinking. Those arrested are taken to police station and locked up. To secure release each will pay a fine of Sh5, 000 without a receipt.”

Her story is a replicated by many bar owners in Kitengela and Isinya town.
