Over the recent past, cases of personation have been on the rise.
Last month, two police officers were arrested for allegedly impersonating officials from the National Environment Management Authority of Kenya (NEMA) and Energy and Petroleum Regulatory Authority (EPRA).
The two Administration Police (AP) Officers, Benson Njoroge Mburu and Justus Mwangi Macharia were nabbed alongside a civilian identified as Duncan Njogu Mukono by Detectives attached to the Serious Crime Unit(SCU).
“The officers were stationed at Kiambu sub-county offices and Modagashe sub-county offices respectively but are currently on interdiction, ” DCI tweeted on November 21.
