Kenyan police are innately corrupt; so corrupt that you have to bribe the boys in blue to be assisted or to avoid being locked up. Police asking for ‘facilitation’ to investigate a crime is still reported as cases of extrajudicial killings continue unabated. This bad manners still persists even after the government increased their salaries. Simply put, it’s in their DNA.
