Two Administration Police from Kiambu were among five people arrested for harassing and extorting money from businesspeople in Lunga Lunga town, Kwale county.
The APs were masquerading as security for four civilians who impersonated NEMA officers. They targeted businesses that did not meet NEMA requirements.
Directorate of Criminal Investigations identified them as Corporal Benson Njoroge Mburu of Kiamumbi AP post, Constable Margaret Maina of Kamiti Corner AP post in Kiambu and the civilians were Duncan Njogu Mukono, Grace Wambui Ndung’u and Purity Mumbi Njagi. One suspect managed to escape.
“The five suspects had already received money from more than three complainants including Sh25,000 sent to Mukono’s Mobile phone” DCI revealed.
They were using a Nissan Tiida that has since been confiscated by DCI.
