Gone are the days when policemen used to be feared.
People have become more daring and are willing to risk their lives as long as they get some money.
On Wednesday at around 1 pm, a daring man stole a bundle of notes from traffic police in Kathageri along the Nairobi -Meru highway.
An eyewitness who was driving along the road at the time when the incident happened told the Nairobian that there were two police officers at scene when the incident occurred.
The man emerged from a bush, grabbed the money that the officers had collected from motorists and ran away with it.
The male police officer tried to pursue him but he was not able to catch up with him as the daring thief had planned his mission well.
The police officers were only armed with batons and had nothing else to do but watch helplessly as their easy earned cash was being whisked away.
‘I’m finding this funny and commendable.A daring man yesterday in Embu emerged from the bush and stole the whole bribe the traffic police officers had extorted from motorists and kept in a central place. He then ran and disappeared in the thickets nowhere to be seen. Wow!’
The police have been known to be the most corrupt people in Kenya. Due to the fear of being hunt down by the Ethics Anti-corruption Commission Of Kenya, they usually hide the money in a nearby bush or hand over the bribes collected from motorists to trusting civilians.
