In whose hands are we safe: CCTV exposes cop stealing from invigilators
A police officer assigned to man the ongoing KCSE examinations is on the run after being caught on CCTV ransacking the handbags of female invigilators.
In a video, the police officer dressed in full uniform is seen entering an empty classroom and going straight to where the invigilators kept their bags.
He sat down between the bags and looked around to ensure no one was watching and then began to ransack the bags.
After ‘taking’ the valuables, the police officer is seen leaving the room.
According to a source, the three victims have recorded statements after finding out the cash they had in their handbags could not be traced.
“One of the victims reported that she lost a hundred shillings, another lost nine hundred, while the other three hundred shillings, which prompted them to consult with the school administration to review the CCTV camera,” the source said.
Investigations have been launched to track and arrest the police officer.
The video has attracted different comments from KOT as others say that the police officer decided to steal because they are underpaid.
“There’s no shock there. These people are underpaid and how the economy is high for a living,” said one Twitter user.

On the other hand, another Twitter user said that what the police officers are doing shows exactly what a hustler nation looks like.

Yet another Twitter user said that the officers have been driven by greed and that is why they decided to do what they did.
There is no justification for this whatsoever,it's all about greed,the officer has a job and he is still,someone else out there has none but toiling to get the daily bread .
Sack and prosecute his ASAP!

Another tweep added that Kenyans are used to police officers stealing from them.
