A viral footage of a police officer demanding for bribe from charcoal vendors has sparked uproar online.

In the footage, a police officer is seen drawing his gun on charcoal vendors and demanding for bribe.

Tuesday, April 14 — The Inspector General of police Hilary Mutyambai ordered for the arrest of the police officer.

DP William Ruto commented on the viral video, revealing that the government will be swift in effecting justice.

“The IGP has ordered the immediate arrest of this police officer & will shortly appear in court. There is no room for impunity even during this time when all systems are geared towards dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. Citizens must keep vigil as they adhere to the directives of the Ministry of Health (MoH).”

In the viral video that was reportedly shot in Kilifi, two boda boda riders ferrying charcoal gangu up and try to rough up the police officer who swiftly pulls out his gun.

Nipe pesa! (Give me the money),” the officer repeatedly demanded of the vendors.

The charcoal vendors handed the bribe to the police officer and asked him to leave. However, one of the vendors got annoyed and started taunting the officer to shoot him.

The confrontation heated up for a couple of minutes before the officer drives off in a police land cruiser — bribe in hand.

The all incident appeared to have been plotted by the vendors since they are heard asking another man if he captured the whole footage on camera.

In the footage, one vendor is heard asking the officer to stop speaking in mother tongue which could imply that they had hatched the plan to expose the corrupt police officer dealings.
