5 police officers were on Saturday injured after the vehicle they were travelling in was involved in a road accident in Marsabit county.

The accident occurred at around 10 am, about 40 kilometres from North Horr town. They were on their way to Dukana Town to impound ‘second generation’ alcohol.

A picture from the scene has been doing rounds on social media and it raises some fundamental questions.

A few bottles of Tusker are seen on the ground, and people are wondering whether the officers were drinking on the job and if not, whether they are also impounding licensed alcoholic products.
