Earlier this morning, Kenyans woke up to one of the most horrific news seen in the recent past as a police officer went rogue and killed five people before turning the gun on himself.

It's alleged that the police officer who is based at the Kabete Police Station, had first turned the gun on his wife, killing her on the spot with his AK-47 police issued rifle.

Reports on our desks at this moment is that Waiyaki Way has been blocked by protesters who are demanding answers on the killing of the innocent Kenyans by the rogue police officer.

Among the dead were Bodaboda riders who the officer shot indiscriminately killing them on the spot and this is what has prompted the protests on the busy highway.

The National Police Service anti riot brigade is already at Waiyaki Way to quell the tensions that have seen thousands of motorists stranded this morning.
