Let us hope cops’ new anti-graft unit can­not be bribed

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The move by the National Po­lice Ser­vice to form an un­der­cover unit to ar­rest of­fi­cers so­lic­it­ing or re­ceiv­ing bribes will help re­duce cor­rup­tion. It will re­duce the amount of bribes that change hands among the ju­nior of­fi­cers and the se­nior of­fi­cers who de­mand bribes and ex­tort Kenyans. It has been op­er­at­ing for one week and so far, at least nine of­fi­cers and two civil­ians have been ar­rested. I hope the cor­rup­tion dragon won’t swal­low this team. I also hope the of­fi­cers won’t be in­tim­i­dated, threat­ened or killed while do­ing their job.
