Police Spokesperson Bruno Shioso has spoken barely hours after a Citizen TV exposé that lifted a lid on a mobile phone scam operating within the dreaded Kamiti Maximum Prison.
Speaking to a local daily, Shioso explained that the racket has been operating for long and that the police had been trying to dismantle it for years.
He further noted that police recruitments are the main target with investigations showing that most cons originate from the Kamiti Call Center.
“It is not the first time. The problem at Kamiti has been there for the longest time and we have always been trying to dismantle that network with the help of the prison authorities. We shall also look into it and we have received a lot of scams during the recruitment of police recently. Shioso spoke to Kenyans.co.ke.
“We are already doing investigations against the police recruitment where most of the calls were coming from Kamiti. The investigations started after recruitment. We traced the signals and showed that they were coming from Kamiti,” stated Shioso.
He further added that for individuals found guilty, the law would take its course and that the individuals would be prosecuted in the court.
