Policeman commits suicide

03 December 2012, 14:40 Alloys Musyoka

A police officer stationed at Watamu police station in Malindi district committed suicide on Friday night near the station.

The officer is said to have committed suicide using a bed sheet from the roof of an ongoing construction site in the area.

Area chief Michael Kahingu Lenga said the deceased was found dangling from the roof of a room near the station.
He said they have not yet established the reason behind the suicide.

“We don’t want to speculate on what caused the death of the deceased but since he was sick for quite a long time that might have been the cause," he noted.

He said the body of the deceased was taken to Malindi Hospital mortuary where it is awaiting postmortem as police investigate the matter.

However, Malindi Police boss confirmed the incident a day after he refuted the same claiming it was rumors and asked journalists to get information from the Media Council of Kenya Chief Executive Officer.
