Female officer causes colleague shooting in local bar

31 August 2016, 19:31

Nairobi – Two Nairobi police officers involved in what seems to have been a complicated love triangle dispute with a female colleague caused havoc at bar.

According to the Kenyan Constable, Patrick Thuranira and Constable, Irungu started arguing after Irungu accused Thuranira of having an affair with their female colleague, Constable, Sara Gatonye.

However the drama escalated when Irungu drew his gun and shot at an unarmed Thuranire, who happens has a pending murder investigation against him.

Irunugu has since been taken into police custody.

Last week a female police officer has died after shooting herself at the JKIA.

Corporal Gaudencia Wausi is said to have committed suicide after reporting back to work from leave on Tuesday.

The  officer who was attached to the JKIA police station committed the offense inside a toilet at the airport.

Cases of suicide within the police force have been on the rise, with studies blaming the trend on exposure to murders, road crashes and homicides.

According to statistics, at least 28 officers killed themselves last year.
