Deputy President William Ruto has claimed that some rogue top police officers are aiding the narcotics trade and protecting cartels.
The DP said this in Mombasa yesterday and warned that internal investigations had been launched to identify officers colluding with drug dealers.
Mr Ruto also warned that Kenya was collaborating with foreign nations, including the US, to investigate and combat the narcotics trade through Kenyan territory.
« There could be a few individuals in the police force that have been compromised by the drug barons, but a lot is happening to deal with the suspects. Action is being taken against those suspected to have been compromised by the drug dealers, » said Ruto after chairing a security meeting with regional officials in Coast region, including Coast Regional Co-ordinator Nelson Marwa.
