Who could be this governor whose motorcade was harassing motorist along Nairobi -Nakuru highway? The governor who is said to have been heading to the Devolution Conference that started yesterday in Kakamega county had his three-car motorcade shoving other motorist off the road with impunity.

A lady corporal police officer based at the Buru buru station is said to operate with impunity and cases have been raised against her for harassing residents of Umoja, Buru Buru estates and its environs. The officer on a number of occasions has been reported to the bosses over extortion claims from small entrepreneurs in her jurisdiction but no action was taken. She is also said to have evicted the wife of a colleague who is ailing from the police houses. The residents now want Independent Police Oversight Authority and Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinett to deploy sleuths to investigate the matter failure to which they consider taking the law into their hands.
