Kisumu - A traffic police officer based in Kisumu died after shooting himself five times in the head.
Corporal Alfred Ndalana is alleged to have killed himself following the recent police vetting exercise which he claimed exposed him to the media.
According to Standard, Ndalana had confessed to his colleague that the vetting exercise also left him feeling insecure, and could be the reason he decided to take his life.
In June, the vetting panel chair, Commissioner Ronald Musengi demanded to know why Ndalana was frequently receiving money from a local businessman by the name Hemal Kotesha.

Reports indicated that Kotesha, who owns a fleet of vehicles had been giving money to top traffic officers, raising bribery suspicion.
Ndalana however explained that Kotesha paid him to escort the gods during religious processions and funerals.
He further pointed out that Kotesha is a kind and good-hearted person who liked giving money to the poor.
But on Thursday, Ndalana decided to take his life.
