Static traffic police officers: Inspector General of Police Hilary Mutyambai has announced that all static traffic officers along all Kenyan roads will be removed. The police officers will be replaced by mobile traffic officers.

Mutyambai made the revelation when he received 19 vehicles from the National Transport and Safety Authority.

Inspector General Mutyambai said that 38 vehicles will be used by the Police Traffic Department across the major highways across the country to control traffic. “The vehicles are marked. Serial number 1-38 and the routes. The vehicles will also be provided with the registration numbers and the names of the officers,” he said.

The registration on each vehicle will then enable the National Police Service to take action against the police officers whose complaints will be raised. It now remains to be seen whether this is the latest effort at curbing corruption, which is quite rampant in the police service.

Deputy Inspector General Edward  Njoroge Mbugua said during the event that there will no longer be detention of drivers by traffic police over minor offences. “Traffic officers on duty should have a uniform while on duty… have tags with their name…and should not be covered by jackets,” he said.
