Disciplinary action has been instituted on three traffic officers caught soliciting bribes from matatu operators on Kangundo Road, Nairobi.
The Internal Affairs Unit of the National Police Service (NPS) identified and summoned them for formal disciplinary measures today.
In a statement, NPS says its Internal Affairs Unit began investigations promptly after receiving the footage and has now identified the three officers who will face stern action.
“Following a video clip that went viral showing three traffic police officers colluding with two members of the public in engaging in misconduct along Kangundo Road, Nairobi, the Internal Affairs Unit, NPS commenced an investigation and positively identified the officers involved,” read part of the statement.
Further, the police urged members of the public to report to the Unit whenever they identify police officers being involved in acts amounting to corruption or any form of police misconduct.
IAU director Mohamed Amin said the three will be disciplined internally and later be informed on the way forward.
The officers based at Buruburu police station were on duty on when a cameraman who had monitored their activities captured them colluding with two members of the public to receive bribes.
