Linda Okello finds herself in the news again after being demoted from her corporal rank to a constable position. The voluptuous officer, who came into the limelight in 2014 after photos of her in a form-fitting skirt went viral making her an overnight celebrity, was demoted on allegations of corruption. The Kiambu county-based traffic officer was found with Sh.1000 in her pocket when a sting operation was carried out at Kirigiti area, Kiambu an area suspected to be a hotspot for police to receive bribes from traffic offenders.
The disciplinary action that was sanctioned by the area Traffic commandant, Jacinta Muthoni has received backlash both within the police force and by citizens in general with many stating that it was unfair as there was no evidence of corruption brought forth against Linda and questioning the authenticity of the action. Reports state that two of Linda’s colleagues fled during the sting but she remained steadfast throwing even more doubt on her involvement in any corrupt activities. It is expected that the officer will challenge the disciplinary action just as she did in 2014 when she was facing charges of an untidy mode of dressing after the photos of her tight-up skirt were posted online.
