The image of a police officer circulating on social media that he was arrested for detonating teargas canister at a UDA rally in Kondele- Kisumu County is fake.
When we did a reverse image search, we found out that the police image was for Sergeant Robert Kimeto attached to Londiani police station who was arrested by Ethics and Anti-Corruption Commission (EACC) in Kisumu in November 2019 when EACC bumped into them taking bribes at a roadblock they were manning in Mamboleo.
During the raid EACC arrested five police officers in Kisumu including the once who were manning near the Kisumu International Airport. https://www.standardmedia.co.ke/nyanza/article/2001350232/gunfire-blood-as-eacc-arrests-traffic-police-officers
Yesterday’s UDA rally in Kondel led by Deputy President William Ruto there was no police officer or any citizen arrested despite chaos witnessed.
Sky FM looked into the claim which was circulating in social Medias and found it to be false.
