I have often heard of how policemen demand for bribes from individuals. However, either by coincidence or good luck, I never had a direct incident until two weeks ago.
The incident followed a road accident incident involving a neighbour. His vehicle had been hit by a truck. It was clear the other driver was at fault and so everyone thought it was a clear-cut case of reporting for insurance claim purposes and police case if any came up.
However, to our utter shock, a policeman who stopped by asked for a bribe, “to facilitate for preparing the statement for insurance purposes signed”. The incident took place was on Mombasa road.
