Remember Caroline Kangogo? Her Family Issues New Demands One Year Later After Holding a Memorial

One year after the death of police officer Caroline Kangogo, who was wanted for allegedly killing her colleague John Ogweno and businessman Peter Ndwiga, the investigation into her death has not been completed.

Ms Kangogo was found dead at her parents' home in Anin village, Elgeyo Marakwet County, on July 16, 2021 after disappearing for two weeks.

Her body was found in the bathroom while the police maintain that she may have committed suicide. No traces of blood were found in the bathroom, raising questions about the cause of her death.

Although her family is still trying to return to normal life following the death of their loved one, they have expressed satisfaction with the ongoing investigation. However the family is now demanding that the investigations should be completed as soon as possible. This comes after they held a memorial ceremony at their home to remember the late Caroline Kangogo.

"We have given evidence to the court about what we know and we expect that the investigation will be completed soon and the truth will be found. The other day we held a memorial ceremony," said Mr Mark Kangogo who is the late Caroline's brother.

"We agree with the previous police report that she killed herself using a pistol found at the scene of the incident. We have accepted all that the police found out in their investigation and the surgical report because we want this matter to be completed," Mark Kangogo added.

A Ceska pistol with number G4670 with eight bullets was found at the scene.

State pathologist Johansen Oduor confirmed that Ms Kangongo died from a single bullet that ruptured her skull.
