Molo OCS Ann Kanori, who hit the headline a month ago after her househelp took off with Ksh320,000 was arrested on Friday.

However, her arrested caused a scene at the Molo Police Station where detectives from the Ethics and Anti-corruption Commission (EACC) tried to put her behind bars.

EACC detective grilled her for five hours before whisking her to Railways Police Station in Nakuru, where she was locked up.

But it took Joseph Tonui, Molo Sub-County Police Commander Samuel Mukusi, to bring the situation to calm.

Nakuru County Deputy Police Commander Joseph Tonui later confirmed Kanori’s arrest.

“She spent the night behind bars, as EACC investigated alleged grafts against her in the recent past,” Tonui said.

“The OCS had declined to accompany the EACC officers, but she eventually agreed to go after other officers interceded,” Tonui added.

In June, Kanori lost Ksh320 bail money to her househelp, who fled with the money but was later arrested.

The OCS took the money to his house for safekeeping together with other important documents.

The Molo police boss explained that the station was in a dilapidated state. They asked the government through the area MP’s office for renovation which was granted.

“We had asked for support from the area Constituency Development Fund to renovate the station. The cash bail could not remain at the station as constructors undertook their duties,” Mukhusi stated.

He, however, maintained that Kanori must refund the money in earnest.

“The OCS will have to look for ways to avail the money for its intended purpose even if it means she will apply for a loan,” the Molo police boss declared.
