Busia police are holding a man accused of masquerading as one of them. The suspect is Godfrey Wasike alias Mark, a resident of Mbaale village in Masaba Sub-county. 

Police also accuse Wasike of deploying himself at Bueheh police station in Buhehe Sub-county and illegal possession of two pairs of police uniforms, boots and a military Safari mattress among others.

Charles Wanyama Hasuben, the Buhehe Sub-county LC 3 chairperson, says that the suspect deployed himself in the Sub-county on October 10, 2021. He explains that upon arrival at Buhehe police station, the suspect claimed that the Busia District Police Commander had deployed him. 

He, however, says that the suspect could neither tell his police number nor disclose his previous workstation. He says that the suspect was also unable to write in the police diary, which raised suspicion prompting them to inquire with the DPC. 

Wanyama says that the DPC denied knowledge of the suspect leading to his arrest.
