“Officer Linda Okello who gained popularity over a skirt deemed immodest, has been demoted following corruption allegations.Okello shot to fame when images of her in the skirt went viral on social media. The officer was later voted one of the woman representatives in the service.She landed in trouble when Sh1,000 was found in her pocket during a sting operation last Saturday on officers receiving bribes at Kirigiti area in Kiambu.Two of her colleagues escaped but Okello stayed put. Traffic commandant Jacinta Muthoni sanctioned disciplinary action against her.Okello was demoted from a corporal to a constable. The decision has drawn mixed reactions from the rank and file in the police force.An officer who sought anonymity said it was unfair to demote Okello without evidence of corruption. Others want her charged in court.Reached for comment on Tuesday, Muthoni told the Star: “I cannot comment on administrative issues. Who leaked the information? I will not comment; ask the higher authorities,” read the Newspaper.
However,in a fresh twist the celebrity cop has come out to refute the malicious rumor doing rounds,arguing if there were any news,good or bad,then she’d take the courtesy of letting her fans know. Linda further urged her followers not to fall for cheap publicity stories but rather seek the truth.
This leaves many with a common question,will Linda sue the Newspaper for tarnishing her name?If not,does it mean there might be a hidden truth??
Here’s what she posted in her defence;
“Just ignore those negative posts about my demotion and stuff.. if there’s any news, good or bad, I will be the first one to post it here for you guys. You’re a family and continue being my shield as well as my defenders. #luvY‘aaaall so very much”.
