Another Kenyan Police officer has killed himself after shooting his lover and mother of his children to death during a quarrel.
A Kenyan Police officer has left people in his country in total shock after he shot his lover dead with his service rifle before turning the gun on himself in a murder/suicide act.
The officer, Stephen Mungai Kinuthia, a resident of the Nakuru County area of the country reportedly shot the lady and mother of his two children on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, with his AK47 rifle before killing himself at their rental house in Freehold Area.
According to CitizenTV, Kinuthia, who was attached to the Molo Police Station, reportedly shot the lady three times before taking his own life.
A witnessed who narrated the incident said:
“I was with the caretaker when we heard a man fighting with the wife and the man was striking her with canes, and as we were going to help, we heard gunshots and stayed put,” the witness said.
Continuing, the witness said the neighbours heard their children screaming:
'Baba anaua mama,' meaning 'father is killing mother' before they heard the gunshots which rang from the apartment.
Other neighbours said the woman had only lived in the apartment for two weeks and that the police officer was a frequent visitor.
Confirming the incident, the Officer Commanding Police Division [OCPD] for the Nakuru Police, Joshua Omukatta, said police have started a probe to establish what transpired while the bodies of the deceased have been taken to Nakuru County government mortuary as investigations continue.
