Kenya’s five hottest policewomen 2020 speak on work, men, dating and fun

15

Men have always outnumbered women in the police force but gone are the days when the few female police officers were viewed as being reserved. They now work hard and play hard. They are drop-dead gorgeous and many men would wish to have a private moment with these beautiful officers, even if it means getting arrested. Here is Standard Entertainment & Lifestyle’s list of the hottest officers in 2020:

Serah Mwongeli aka Sessy.

Growing up

I was born and raised in Mombasa. Life was really hard when growing up. I cleared high school in 2009 and taught in a high school for one year then joined the service in 2011. I decided to go back to school in 2017 and I’m currently a fourth-year Law student at The University of Nairobi.

Current station

I’m currently stationed at the Administration Police Training College in Embakasi as an instructor. This place has taught me to always serve as a good example to the rest because so many young officers learn from their superiors.

Why this job?

At first, it wasn’t my job of choice. I was always the shy type and kept asking myself if people would even take me seriously, but then I got to learn respect is earned

Good times and challenges

The good moments must be when someone appreciates the work you do, that’s the best feeling ever because you know that your goodwill and service to the people doesn’t go in vain. There are so many challenges as a female cop but I know these challenges are meant to make us stronger

Is it true what a man can do, a woman can do better?

Let’s just say it doesn’t matter whether you are a man or a woman. If you do your work with passion then nothing will be too hard. There are women who are more hardworking than men and vice versa. I believe I’m strong-willed and passionate about my work. I’ve taught over 8,000 recruits and I’m sure most of them can attest to that.

 

What don’t people believe about ladies in the service?

They say ladies are favoured and others are never given the hard jobs to do. That is not true from the experience I get here.  We all went through the same training, we all work night shifts and go on escort duties just like the men in service.

How’s your social life?

Wow! My social life… I love life and I hate being dull, so when I’m not working I love being surrounded by people who make life worth living.

Where do you shop?

I have no specific shop because I basically choose according to what I like and not what is expensive or cheap. I love looking good so I spend according to what attracts me.

What designers are you rocking right now?

I am rocking a Versace jumpsuit from limitless reload and Beyoncé perfume.

Any other collection you do fancy?

I’m a Medusa lover.

Your DMs must be full, right?

My DMs are not that full but I really don’t want them to be because apparently most people in my DM want to be “arrested” by me.

What do you do for fun?

I love music. If I had the voice to sing I’d be pursuing a music career. I also love dancing and reading.

What can’t you leave the house without?

Purse, phone, cash and lip-gloss.

What is the one fashion rule you live by?

Basically, whatever I’m wearing should accentuate my shape.

Married…dating…in an entanglement?

I’m seeing someone at the moment.

Who is your role model?

I have two; that will be my mum and dad. They have been through so much but have managed to raise us to be the best versions of ourselves.

Catch you dead…

I would be caught dead if I go back to my ex and if I ever regret having my two kids.

Alice aka Thebabypolice

Alice aka Thebabypolice.

Growing up

I grew up in the larger Mt Kenya region. I am driven by passion and I’m currently studying Criminology at Mt Kenya University.

Current station

I’m based in Mumias, Kakamega County and I have no regrets being here. I find it really cool.

Why the service?

Strangely, I really admired the courage of policewomen since I was young.

Good and tough moments…

Since I joined the force it has been fulfilling moments for me. The only challenge I face is citizens not taking me seriously because I’m young. That can be very frustrating for any officer.

Is it true what a man can do, a woman can do better?

I wouldn’t agree with that fully because it’s a fact men are stronger though superiority should not be based on physical strength only. Mentally we are the same and that’s what matters.

What don’t people believe about ladies in the service?

Most think that we are favoured by our bosses. When you go to solve a crime, it’s about you and your knowledge to execute. There’s no favouritism.

How’s your social life?

Honestly, I’d rather keep to myself. I’m not really into active social life but we could bump into each other when I want to cool off steam.

 

How much do you spend shopping and where?

I’m a random spender who often buys what I see and like. I mostly do online shopping.

What’s in your designer closet?

I really don’t rock designers – probably I’m too young to care about that now.

Who is your favourite designer?

Me, myself and I.

How do you react when men slide in your DM?

It’s normal. I simply ignore them. Next…

What do you do for fun?

I love watching movies and swimming. For getaways, I’m a sucker for road trips.

What must you carry before leaving the house?

I pray the Lord to bless my day. That is what really matters (laughs).

Fashion statement you live by?

Be you.

What makes you happy?

My son. He’s my shining star.

Single, dating or entangled?

Dating.

Role model?

My mom, always and forever.

Catch me dead…

Stressing about flamboyant stuff. Not me.

Growing up

I was raised on the chilly slopes of Limuru. I’m the firstborn. I’m also a public relations and diplomacy student.

Current station

I’m based at Nairobi’s Kilimani police station.

Why the service?

Truth is I was an unemployed citizen and the opportunity availed itself. It wasn’t just luck, I really pushed hard and now I really love and respect the job

Good and bad moments

Just like any other profession, working in the force has its ups and downs. Nothing to complain about though. I could write a best seller on this.

Is it true what a man can do, a woman can do better?

In normal circumstances, I wouldn’t agree with that when assigned a task by my seniors, there’s no gender consideration. It has to be done with efficiency.

What don’t people believe about ladies in the service?

Some say we get aggressive but dealing with lawbreakers isn’t easy. You have to be a little hard-headed.

How’s your social life?

I’m an introvert so you wouldn’t find me going out on a regular. I love spending my time indoors. But when there’s a music festival, you wouldn’t miss me. That’s the other side of being a Gemini, as they say.

How much do you spend shopping and where?

I like simplicity as long as it brings out my vibe. Anything I like, I take. My plugs Hubba collections hook me up.

What’s in your designer closet?

I love keeping time and my Casio chronometer does it for me. Hugo Boss private accord gives me a lingering charm.

Who’s your favourite designer?

Do I really have one? Pass!

How do you react when men slide in your DM?

My DMs are fascinating, to say the least, from ‘can you use your cuffs on me?’ to ‘arrest me please’ It’s interestingly annoying and a definite ‘no’ from me.

What do you do for fun?

I’m a gym fanatic who also fancies swimming. I love playing the guitar too.

What must you do before leaving the house?

Past experience taught me to always check if all the taps are turned off.

Fashion statement you live by?

Always look the part.

What makes you happy?

Family. When they are happy, I’m very happy.

Single, dating or entangled?

Dating

Role model

Has to be my mother. A strong woman.

Catch me dead…

Not being myself.

Patricia Mwarashu aka Tricia

Patricia Mwarashu aka Tricia.

Growing up

I grew up in Mombasa in a family of two children.

Current Station

I’m currently serving in Machakos County.

Why the service?

I loved it since my childhood days. I actually used to act as an arresting officer.

Good and tough moments

I love the job and the fact that I can provide for the people I love is something I always thank God for. I don’t keep memories of the bad.

Is it true what a man can do, a woman can do better?

Why not? A bigger percentage of ladies have switched from preferring white-collar jobs. It’s not so easy being a cop but we do it efficiently.

What don’t people believe about ladies in the service?

Sadly, most would think that we are naïve and wouldn’t cope with the pressures that come with it. The narrative has changed and I feel like people have learnt to appreciate ladies compared to some years back.

 

How’s your social life?

I’m very sociable. I easily get along with people and love hanging out with friends whilst making new ones.

How much do you spend shopping? F

Funny enough, I shop randomly. As long as it catches my eye, I will cup it. I don’t mind spending Sh10,000 or more randomly as long as it fits well and compliments my look.

What’s in your designer closet?

I go for trendy styles. Currently, I’m donning Sunrise perfume because it has a floral, fruity fragrance and keeps me in the right mood.

Who’s your favourite designer?

For me, it’s mitumba designs all the way.

How do you react when men slide in your DM?

I usually get DM’s but too bad for them, I’m a one-man woman. I’m dating.

What do you do for fun?

Movies, though I also like chilling and hanging out with friends.

Before leaving the house…

I never step out without saying a prayer and thanking God.

Fashion statement you live by

Simplicity and class, always.

What makes you happy?

I love putting a smile on my mother’s face. She has moulded our family.

Role model

Mommy dear.

Catch me dead

Showing off. I’m a simple mommy’s girl.

Growing up

I grew up in Kisumu city in a Muslim family of 10. Besides service, I’m a Human Resource graduate from MKU.

Current Station

Langata, West Park police post.

Why the service?

It’s actually a dream come true. I always admired cops.

Good and hard moments

I’ve met so many people and been to so many places. It’s fascinating.  Challenges are there just like any other job but they only sharpen my claws.

Is it true what a man can do, a woman can do better?

Yes! Unbelievably, both sexes went through the same training. It was strenuous with no shortcuts but look at me now.

What don’t people believe about ladies in the service?

They think we’re only assigned front desk jobs but we do patrols, nightshifts, riots. Oh, I have arrested a lot of lawbreakers too (giggles).

How’s your social life?

I love travelling with friends, going for explorations. ‘Life is for the living’ that’s the code I live by.

How much do you spend shopping and where?

I’m a ‘shoeaholic’ and get mine from top stores like Emirates and Backyard collections. When I see a nice outfit, I never leave it behind. I give my heart what it wants.

What’s in your designer closet?

I love sweet and warm gourmands so La Vie est Belle perfume does just that for me. I also have a couple of designer boots beside my service boots.

Who’s your favourite designer?

Gucci, Fendi and Michael Korrs any day.

How do you react when men slide in your DM?

Oh, that happens every day but I have my principles and limits so I brush them off quietly.

What do you do for fun?

I love music and you’d catch me jamming and humming too. It’s very therapeutic.

Before leaving the house

I always pray. It’s the ultimate weapon.

Fashion statement you live by

It has to be decent and comfortable.

What makes you happy?

Open-mindedness absolutely does. Kindness for me is a turn on.

Single, dating or entangled?

Dating

Role model

Definitely my mom. She is my pillar and I admire her patience.

Catch me dead

Trying to impress somebody. I do me, hate it or love it.
