The late recce officers wife and brothers ease tension, describe the final seconds with the officer

A GSC officer was brutally murdered over the weekend in Nakuru, leaving his family in excruciating pain.

The officer's family in Mazembe Village, which is on the fringes of Nakuru County, has described the last moments they shared with him before the cruel hand of fate took him away.

Hezron Onwonga, the late officer's brother, claims that the officer was slain after being ambushed by thugs while they were leaving a world cup game.

Hezron, who suffered injuries to his forehead after being struck by a blunt instrument, expressed gratitude for his survival following the run-in with the criminals.

The officer who passed away in the hospital after being taken there as a result of the attack had returned home to celebrate his child's graduation.

His wife Faith Kemunto requested the government to expedite investigations to apprehend the offenders in a statement to the media.

She claimed that Onwonga had been the young family's only source of income and that his passing had been a serious shock to the dependents.

Three people have been detained by police so far in connection with the officer's murder.
