A section of Kasarani residents have sounded an alarm over a ring of criminals posing as police officers in the area.
The residents claim that the police impostors have formed a habit of extorting money from them and threatening them with throwing them into police cells if they refuse to give in to their demands.
The residents who spoke to Ghetto Radio News state that the impostors’ biggest victims are bodaboda riders and private car operators.
“I was with my friend in Kasarani when we met one of the fake police officers, he was with a female officer. They took the key to my boda boda and demanded that we give them bribes,” said one of the impostors’ victims.
The impostors mostly operate at night with a private car and handcuffs in tow.
“They have a black car, a KBQ, i do not remember the make but i know that they are two,” he stated.
The residents claim that they have reported the two police impostors to the police but they are yet to see any arrests.
