Two cops arrested for failing to repatriate Somali nationals

by CKG Editor

Two Anti-Terrorism Police Unit (ATPU) detectives have been arrested for failing to repatriate four Somali nationals who were found to be in the country illegally.

Police said the two will on Tuesday, April 4 be charged at Kahawa Law Courts for various offenses.

The two Constables attached to the ATPU in Lamu were arrested by detectives from the Internal Affairs Unit (IAU) and are detained at Capitol Hill police station in Nairobi.

They face additional charges of forgery and corruption.

The probe was launched after the three officers, then based at the Busia border, were found to have colluded with the Somali nationals and failed to repatriate them.

The foreigners sneaked into the country through Uganda and were arrested.

The court ordered that they be taken back to their country and were handed over to the two arrested officers. The foreigners were later released and found in the country.

Investigations reveal that rogue officers and some government officials collude with aliens to get into the country while those ordered to be repatriated by the court are also released and living freely in the country.

In one of the cases under investigation, a former Assistant Chief from Tana River and a resident of Eastleigh is said to be helping foreigners acquire national ID cards.

A senior official with one of the police oversight bodies said most of these collusions, extortions and other criminal acts by rogue officers were happening with the full knowledge and consent of most senior officers.

“We have cases where officers have been involved in several criminal and disciplinary activities but no meaningful action has been taken against them,” another senior detective said.

Officials are handling the cases with an aim of prosecuting suspects.
