Best traffic police in the country identified by IG Mutyambai

I want them to serve as role models - IG Mutyambai

Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai names Kakamega traffic police as the best in the country

Inspector General Hillary Mutyambai was on Tuesday impressed by officers from the Kakamega Traffic Base adding that they were the best in the nation.

While on his visit to Kakamega County, IG Mutyambai hailed Kakamega Traffic Base Commander Bernard King'oo for leading a diligent team in the region.

"I want traffic officers in Kakamega to be my models to the rest. I plan to invite them to other regions to interact with other officers on how to set a good example and image of the traffic officers," he stated.

The IG had just made an impromptu stop at a multi agency manned road block along Kisumu - Kakamega road where he witnessed several motorists arrested and charged on the spot at a mobile court set-up at Murakha.

Special rewards for non-corrupt traffic police

The IG further vowed to set a structure through which police officers who do not collect bribes will be recognized and rewarded by the State.

"I am thinking of introducing rewards to honour traffic officers who will set a good example in their work by ensuring they do not engage in corrupt practices and enhance road safety," he stated.
