Detectives from the Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Mombasa are currently looking for a police officer who swallowed Ksh 2000 to avoid arrest.
The officer, who is attached to the Kisauni Dog Unit, is said to have swallowed the KSh2,000 bribe after the EACC officers spotted him.
“He took off with the money and swallowed it to hide the evidence, but we are following up with his seniors and we will catch up with him. Officers from the dog section are not entitled to traffic work and we will want to know why he was on the road taking bribes,” said EACC boss George Ojowi adding that the officer has not returned.
Ojowi also said the officer was gone Mteja since then but his seniors are trying to trace him.
“My team is back at the station and is collecting more information which will help in tracing him and bringing him to book,” said Ojowi.
