A Police Constable arrested

A Police Constable under interdiction was again arrested for obtaining Sh86,000 from an officer on the pretext of securing a transfer.

Constable Peter Kilonzi Mwove obtained the cash from Sgt Evelyn Karimi Njeru of Kamwangi Police station by claiming that he was in a position to transfer her to the Central Bank of Kenya (CBK).

The officer, described by detectives as a habitual fraudster, had in June this year arrested at Kyanguni town by the DCI Mutomo crew for obtaining Sh250,000 from Constable Dairus Nyamai Kimanzi of Emali Railways station.

Other colleagues said he had been in Machakos with the same type of crime.

He was under interdiction and had other cases related to the offense.

“He had a case in Shanzu Law Courts for theft of a car, obtaining case at Mwingi law courts and another in Nakuru,” said an officer aware of the probe.

His colleagues said he has a Samsung mobile phone which changes voice code and one may think he or she is speaking to a lady but the same culprit.

“He changes the line and tells the victim that he will be called by Madam so and so then after a few moments a lady call and introduced herself as informed yet he is the same person.”

Cases of extortion have been on the rise.

According to police oversight bodies, rogue officers have been making arrests on trumped-up charges with the sole intention of extorting money.

In the past months at least 20 officers have been arrested for various criminal offenses.
