According to the NPS report, the late Constable Boniface Muthini Mutiso and the late Constable Benson Macharia Njira were both laid to rest at their respective homes in Kirinyaga County.

"Until their demise, the three officers served diligently under the General Service Unit with honour and pride. The NPS is indeed grateful for their service and regrets their untimely demise which is not only a loss to the National Police Service and their loved ones, but also to the country," NPS said.

May their souls rest in eternal peace.
