Four traffic police officers arrested by DCI in Machakos for defying an order by Interior CS Kithure Kindiki on mounting a roadblock.

Four traffic police officers were detained on Saturday by detectives from Machakos County’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) for erecting a roadblock at Matuu in defiance of instructions from Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki.

According to reports, the DCI detectives were tipped off by the area residents over the roadblock before proceeding to Matuu-Mwingi road to ambush the traffic officers.

Upon arrival, the detectives arrested the officers who had stationed their vehicle on the side of the roa

However, one of the officers who was on a motorcycle managed to escape during the arrest.

The three officers were taken to Matuu Police Station pending arraignment in court.

Kindiki had earlier ordered police officers to remove all roadblocks following concerns that the checkpoints were becoming avenues of corruption. It was noted that police were collecting millions in bribes.

The news elicited reactions from Kenyans online who commended the move by the DCI officers.

“Especially, the traffic officers from Matuu are known for collecting bribes. Their work remains to either collect bribes or threaten to arrest you,” Dennis Kivuva commented

“So police officers can run in fear of being arrested? Its sweet to imagine,” Joseph Munuve said. 

“This is something that should continue. This trend of collecting bribes should come to a stop,” read some of the comments online.
