A fired police officer who is said to have blocked President Uhuru Kenyatta’s motorcade has got into more trouble.
Joel Nyakongo who was fired early this year was allegedly reported to be taking a bribe when the motorcade was passing by.
The officer was arraigned in court on Friday for allegedly posing as an officer when he was apprehended over a traffic offence.
The officer was arrested along Haile Selassie road in Nairobi for barricading the entrance of the easy coach booking office and taken to central police station where he branded himself using his police identity card.
Nyakongo who is no longer in the police service, was smacked with three charges which included impeding motorists, counterattacking arrest and failing to obey verbal commands from a costumed officer.
Senior resident magistrate Faith Mutuku who presided over the case ruled that he be freed on a cash bail of Ksh100, 000 or bond of Ksh 200,000 and an indemnity of the same amount.
Nyakongo was in January together with his colleague recognized as Corporal Barnaba Rutto gridlocked a road in Mombasa being used President Kenyatta.
