Kericho, Kenya – May 22, 2023 – Police officers from Kipsitet Police Station in Kericho County on Sunday, May 21, saved a trader from losing goods he imported from Tanzania and destined for Busia.
The attempted robbery with violence took place along the Muhoroni-Kipsitet road in the Bangla area.
According to a police report, five armed gangsters hijacked a Mitsubishi Fuso vehicle that was transporting farm produce from Tanzania to Busia. The gangsters cut the rear canvas of the vehicle and were offloading the goods when they were confronted by police officers who were on patrol.
The officers quickly swung into action and arrested the five gangsters. The goods that were being stolen were recovered and returned to the trader.
The trader, who has not been named, thanked the police for their quick response and for saving his goods. He said that he would have lost a lot of money if the police had not intervened.
The police have urged members of the public to be vigilant and to report any suspicious activity to the authorities. They have also warned criminals that they will be dealt with swiftly and firmly.
This is just one example of the many cases where police officers have saved lives and property. Police officers put their lives on the line every day to protect the public, and we should all be grateful for their service.
