It has just been barely a month since the Molo OCS Anne Kanori caused a stir across the entire country early last month after she claimed that Agnes Karimi, her Nakuru house girl had stolen Kshs 320, 000 from her. Karimi, who was afterwards arrested, and charged with theft, appeared before Molo principal magistrate Rhoda Yator, where she denied stealing KSh 320 thousand from Anne Kanori, and was granted a 500, 000 bail.
The court heard that the 20-year-old woman took the money from Kanori’s house and disappeared before being arrested while on the run.
Kanori told the court she had gone with the money to her house in the staff quarters because the police station was undergoing renovations. The money was meant for cash bail.
However, now more than a month later, the OCS herself, and three of her juniors were arrested after they attacked anti-graft officers who had gone to arrest her.
Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) officers had gone to the station to arrest the OCS who had demanded Sh10,000 from a member of the public.
The officers, Abdi Muktar, Joseph Njunguna, Ephraim Shombe, Nancy Kirui and Daniel Samuel recovered the treated money from the OCS who instead alerted her officers who attacked the anti-graft officers.
“EACC officers had gone to the station in respect of a complaint levelled against Ann Kanori Justus OCS Molo police station who had demanded money from a member of the public who instead reported the matter to EACC Nakuru,” police headquarters said.
“In the process of her being searched and the recovery of Sh10,000 treated money being made, the officers at the station attacked the EACC officers and arrested them and had them locked up in the cells without booking the report in the Occurrence Book (OB),” a brief to police headquarters read.
The officers sustained injuries and lost staff ID cards, phones, car keys, cash, handcuffs, photos of treated money, inventory of recovered money among other items.
