Mr Harrison Mugo, a police officer from Buruburu Police Station has hanged himself barely hours after Mr Mutyambai’s office said it had taken note of the video circulating on social media that shows the officer staggering.
Mr.Salim Onteri, a groundsman at Buruburu police line reported the matter after spotting the officer’s body hanging on rafters of the police canteen within the police station lines at 6am as he was heading for his normal duties.
It seems the officer took this issue too far and couldn’t bear the consequences he was to face as a statement said that the Buruburu police command was handling the matter internally.
National Police Service had also given a statement about it that stated, “The National Police Service condemns it in the strongest terms possible. A uniformed police officer is a visible representation and face of government and is required to remain extremely disciplined and professional while on duty and off duty.”
The body was later taken to Mama Lucy Teaching and Referral Hospital’s morgue after police officers led by Kamukunji police boss visited the scene.
