Hessy speaks for the first time since IG Boinet interview on Citizen TV
Nairobi crime buster Hessy wa Dandora has emerged to set the record straight following IG Joseph Boinett's remarks that he is not a police officer.
The dreaded crime buster known for warning suspects and sharing their photos online before they meet their tragic deaths took to Facebook on Friday night, telling the public to be content with the response given by IG Boinett on his alleged link with the police service.
"Don't ask me if am a police officer or not because the issue was clarified the other day by the Inspector General of police himself.” Hessy wrote.
"I'm a civilian with great interest in matters of security, kindly get satisfied with that or if I may ask, what did you expect the IG to say?" he added.
During the live interview on Citizen TV’s JKL, a viewr asked the IG to clarify if the dreaded crime buster who operates several Facebook accounts with the name Hessy has any links with the police.
This followed investigative piece by the Standard on Sunday alleged that Hessy is an Administration Police Officer based at the Dandora Phase 3 AP camp.
The IG however dismissed the claims, stating that he had heard of the person sharing things on social media and he was not a member of the National Police Service (NPS) and who according to the IG seems to have a lot of interest on security matters.
“I have heard some fellow who posts a lot of stuff on social media but I dont know what that viewer means when he talks about that chap having lots of security intelligence. No he is not one of our police officers. He’s just an excitable chap who seems to have a lot of interest in security issues,” said the Inspector General.
The mystery chap is believed to be behind Nairobi Crime Free’ and 'Dandora Crime Free' Hessy wa Dandora”, Hessy wa Kayole among others.
