Corporal Linda Okello was accused of altering the size of her official uniform. The accusation was made by Deputy Inspector General of Police Grace Kaindi.
In a phone interview on Tuesday morning with QFm, Ms Khaindi was adamant that the contentious skirt had been resized. “That is not the skirt we gave her, she worked on it. All of us are given the same uniform. Have you ever seen another one?” posed Ms Kaindi.
Corporal Okello has been cautioned for dressing inappropriately after a photograph of the traffic officer in a tight skirt went viral in social media and print media.
“If it is tight she is supposed to exchange it in case she gains weight. Please don’t make an issue out of nothing. Read that regulation on police dressing, it is open to the public,” said Ms Kaindi.
Ms Kaindi had on Monday assured that though the corporal will be reprimanded, she will still be based at Lari police station.
