Tight skirt cop Linda Okello demoted after being found with Sh1,000
Okello shot to fame when images of her in the skirt went viral on social media. The officer was later voted one of the woman representatives in the service.
She landed in trouble when Sh1,000 was found in her pocket during a sting operation last Saturday on officers receiving bribes at Kirigiti area in Kiambu.
Two of her colleagues escaped but Okello stayed put. Traffic commandant Jacinta Muthoni sanctioned disciplinary action against her.
Okello was demoted from a corporal to a constable. The decision has drawn mixed reactions from the rank and file in the police force.
An officer who sought anonymity said it was unfair to demote Okello without evidence of corruption. Others want her charged in court.
Reached for comment on Tuesday, Muthoni told the Star: “I cannot comment on administrative issues. Who leaked the information? I will not comment; ask the higher authorities.”
