– The officer claimed her senior was discriminating against her because she hails from a minority tribe in Turkana county
– She dared the service to fire her rather than assigning her areas she cannot make money
– The unidentified officer asked Interior CS Fred Matiang’i and Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai to intervene and help her
A seemingly vexed police officer in Kakamega county has castigated her bosses in the region for frustrating her at work.
The Administration Police (AP) who did not disclose her name accused her seniors in Kakamega for assigning her to work in areas where there are no kickbacks.
The female officer who called a presser in Kakamega on Thursday, October 17, dared the service to sack her rather than subject her to constant frustrations.
“I am tired of being frustrated and intimidated, why can’t my bosses do justice. I ready to be fired. why can’t they assign me areas where I can get money?” she posed
The officer who hails from Turkana county claimed she was being deliberately discriminated because she comes from a minority tribe and has no means to bribe her seniors to assign her places she can make money.
“I came from Turkana and I am here because I am married to a Luhya police officer and I have also been assigned by the service to work here. But I am stressed, they are sidelining me because I am from a minority tribe,” said the officer
She joined the service in 2001 and was transferred to Kakamega county in 2009 as a corporal officer.
The officer, however, said she has never enjoyed working as a police officer and has lost interest in the service.
“I want everyone to hear including my bosses in Nairobi, I want Matiang’i to hear, I am not afraid of being fired but I want justice to be done. I have in this service for long and I have not done anything wrong and my seniors here can testify.
I just want them to come out and explain why they are discriminating against me. Why have they run away? I wanted to address the media before them,” she complained
She claimed she was only depending on her salary to meet her daily expenses despite the service having many opportunities that can help officers make money.
“I am only surviving on my salary yet there are many jobs here that I can be assigned and make money. Like special duties, Huduma Namba and looking after containers, in fact, this of containers is the one that has stressed me.
I was assigned the job and transferred after four days because they thought I was making a lot of money here,” she lamented.
