'Shock as Police officer with a pending case in Court drowned in Kathitha River

Cases of Police officers being caught up in murder and suicide incidences are becoming common. They are either killed or are accomplices in committing murder. And more often, these murders are under controversial circumstances.

The body of a police officer who is alleged to have drowned in Kathitha River, Meru County, has been found.

The body of Mr Duke Nyamweya was found interlocked on tree logs that were found lying across the river.

It is alleged that the Police Officer was on interdiction with a pending case in court.

The scene has been visited by officers from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations who are yet to establish whether the deceased was thrown into the river or he accidentally fell.

The body has been taken to Meru Level 5 Hospital for autopsy and an inquest into the death has been opened.

The incident comes in the backdrop of calls by members of the public and civil rights activists for the National Police Service to offer support to their officers who are suffering mental health problems.
