Yesterday, the National Police Service took to its social media handles blasting a police officer who was caught on camera drunk along a major highway.
According to sources. The officer from Buruburu Police Station has committed suicide just hours after the clip went viral
It has emerged that the officer took his life inside the Buruburu Police Station where his body was discovered by his allies.
This worrying development comes at the backdrop of increased number of suicides around the country.
However police officers seem to be the most affected people, a majority have resulted in killing their colleagues before taking their lives.
The NPS has promised to give mandatory counseling to all these police officers who seem to going through some serious mental torture.
Police officers have been urged to speak up and consult their colleagues and family members to ease depression.
It is sad that thousands of Kenyans have lost their lives through suicides in the past two years with questions raised as to what could be happening in the society.
Harsh economic times and the high Cost of living seems to the major contributor of these incidents.
