Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) Tuesday evening arrested a Police Officer No. 226374 Cpl Abdi Kiano based at Kahawa West Police Station in Nairobi for extortion.

According to EACC, Kiano demanded and received a bribe from a local trader as “protection fees” to allow her to operate the business of selling illicit brew (chang’aa).

The suspect has been booked at Kilimani Police Station pending further action on Wednesday.

This coming in the wake of an incident in which 13 people were killed in Kirinyaga in February, prompting protests from residents who burnt a bar.

Last week, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua said stringent measures will be rolled out to wipe out illicit brews and drugs destroying the lives of hundreds of Kenyans from next week.

The Deputy President said it would not be business as usual as destructive drinks kill people and maim others, promising a tougher response to effectively deal with the vice.
