Kenya police

trafficBelow is a story from a kenyan man named Matthews(not real name for security purposes)who was harassed by traffic officers one night on the busy Lan’gata road.Many of us have similar stories but lack a proper way of reporting the matter for it takes ages for investigations to be done.

“I was driving home from work and i realized one of my lights was not working.I hoped and wished that i would get to a petrol station before bumping into the traffic officers.Unluckily the dreaded cops stopped me and i accepted my mistakes,one of the officer whispered to me “MKUBWA UNATAKA KULALA NDANI LEO AMA UKO NA ELFU NANE?” (sir do you want to spend your night in the cells or you bring Kshs.8000?) I skipped a bit when i heard that i would part with that much amount of money to secure freedom.I told the officer that i didn’t have that much and he threatened to tow my car to the nearby police station.I really thought about my pregnant wife who was due anytime and i decided to go with the officer to a near by A.T.M and withdraw the money for him.It’s true policemen are the most corrupt guys around and many officers in both public and private sectors”

You heard it from the horses mouth.You too can tell your story on this blog

    Now that Ocampo has opened the Waki Envelope we expect he would do justice to this country by bringing culprits to face justice in the Hague as a lasting solution to this country. This will be a land-mark rule, because even a local tribunal will fail Kenyans we need justice to the little and poor. Kenyan politician organized Militia groups namely Mungiki, Kamjeshi, The Kale’s Warriors to kill, rape, murder, burn peoples properties.
    Ocampo is the Man for the job to ensure THIS will never happen again and set example for the rest of Africa.

    on my way to Thika town,several months back when they were trying to reintroduce the michuki rules of seat belts.We came across a roadblock.The matatu we were in was arrested. Apparently there were no seatbelts on the matatu. The officer told all the passengers who had not fastened the safefty belts to alight.Since everyone of us did not have a seat belt fastened, it was obvious we would all alight. thinking that we were many in number we would be let go, mainly because it was not our fault the matatu had no seat belts but the owners of the matatu,was in shock. We all got bundled up into a police truck. One of the passengers tried to plead his case saying it was not our fault,but they would hear nothing of that. But the cop told us if we were each willing to part with 100 bob it would be forgotten, and as they say the rest is history.
