The news comes a day after a man was arrested donning police uniforms and conducting illegal patrols in Langata, Nairobi County.
Gregory Simiyu was arrested by police on patrol who believe that he is part of a bigger group that steals from unsuspecting Kenyans.
“Langata based Detectives are investigating how a civilian, Gregory Simiyu Mabele, donned in fatigues belonging to our sister service APS Kenya, impersonated a Police Officer and started conducting his self assigned, illegal night patrols in Langata’s Southlands area.
The 40-year-old suspect was arrested last night past curfew hours, as he walked around the Southlands suburbs, pretending to be offering public safety and security services.
Detectives suspect that he is part of a wider cabal of criminals, who pose as Police Officers and betray the trust of unsuspecting members of the public, by defrauding & stealing from them.” Said DCI
