Cases of homicide have been on the increase in various parts of the country partly blamed on mental health issues others blamed on COVID-19 economic effects.

According to latest reports, it is alleged that a Police Constable based at Kabete police station shot dead his lover and five other boda boda riders before turning the gun on himself on Tuesday around 2am.

Confirming the incident, area OCPD Francis Wahome stated that Constable Benson Imbatu ran berserk and first shot his lover only identified as Carol on the neck in the house at “N” Market.

He then proceeded to Mountain Mall where he shot the five riders.

A neighbour, Purity Cheruiyot told the police that she had a loud bang from the officer’s house before it caught fire.
