Three police officers, chief accused of robbery

Three police officers have recorded statements at the Bungoma Police Station following their alleged involvement in a robbery.

An assistant chief is also being sought by the police to record a statement over the incident. This follows a complaint by a woman who claimed the administrator intimidated her after she rejected his sexual overtures.

Bungoma South DCIO Zabed Maina confirmed the three suspects had recorded statements.

Gladys Namasaya claimed the three police officers together with the administrator and her former employer stormed her home on September 22 and dismantled her posho mill, forcefully took away a motor-bike before crossing over to Dorofu market in the neighbouring Bungoma South District where they took all her shop stock valued at more than Sh400,000. She says they put the items into a hired lorry and drove away.

“When they arrived, they shoved me into a personal car and forced me to sign a document at gun-point. They had done the same to my illiterate father whom they found operating the posho mill,” said Namasaya.

Ministry of Finance

Namasaya reported the matter to Bungoma Police Station on September 23.

She claims the administrator lied to her former employer, a senior employee in the Ministry of Finance in Nairobi, that she may have stolen money from him when she worked as a house-help for six years.

Bungoma South OCPD Amos Cheboi told The Standard that Namasaya’s former employer recorded statement at Karen Police Station in Nairobi, six days after the incident.

Maina said the police are also trying to establish why the accused decided to take Namasaya’s items to her former employer instead of delivering them to the nearest police station as exhibit.
