Police Officer kills six People and then turns the gun on Himself in Kiambu

After a police officer from Kabete Police Station opened fire on them indiscriminately, seven individuals have been confirmed dead. The police opened fire in the early hours of the morning,7th December 2021, in Kiambu County's Kabete district, then went to his wife's business (a wines and spirits shop) and asked her to close and go home.

When they arrived at their destination, the cop is reported to have shot her before returning to his truck and turning the pistol on himself. “He inflicted injuries on the wife's neck before he went to his car before he put the cock of the gun on his chin and fired," an officer privy to the matter stated. Details as to why the officer went on a rampage were still unknown at the time of publication, as detectives from the crime unit stepped in to gather evidence and solve the mystery.

Following similar occurrences in the past, the case has once again brought the National Police Service into the spotlight. Approximately 60 police officers commit suicide each year, according to a report by mental health professionals. Under social, economical, and workplace pressures, the majority is said to disintegrate.
