The Directorate of Criminal Investigations Tuesday told citizens to be cautious when approached by a person who claims to be a DCI detective.
According to the DCI, one should ask for the Certificate of Appointment (C.o.A) when someone who claims to be a DCI officer insists on talking to them.
“If you are still in doubt after seeing the certificate, you should ask for the number of his immediate boss to confirm their identity,” said DCI.
The DCI’s warning comes after its detectives arrested a police constable pretending to be a detective with fake DCI documents.
The constable, Samuel Mutachi also demanded a bribe of Sh200,000 and received Sh35,000 from an advocate he was scamming.
