A junior officer who was assigned to guard a school exams container at Lomut Police station in Pokot Central, West Pokot county assaulted his Officer Commanding Station (OCS) after being questioned why he failed to report on duty.

In a police report seen by K24 Digital, OCS Julius Motanya summoned John Moilem to find out why he never showed up at work, and surprisingly, John stood and slapped his boss before other officers who were around intervened.

“During the questioning, the officer (CPL. John Moilem) slapped the OCS on the face before other officers who were within the proximity moved and restrained him,” the police report read in part.

The officer has now been transferred from Lomut police station to Marich police station.

“Administratively the defaulter has been moved from Lomut police station to Marich police station immediately and an inquiry file to be opened within the shortest time possible for appropriate action to be taken. Also, the officer has been relieved of container guard duties,” the report further read.
