On the night of Sunday 22nd August 2021, an officer in Nakuru County shot and killed his lover in hospital. He, then, (as is becoming the norm in Kenya) turned the gun on himself and took his own life.
The cop, Bernard Kivo, who is attached to the Njoro Police Station, is said to have assaulted Ms Mary Nyambura, 29. She then sought treatment at the Njoro Sub-County Hospital, with a fractured right leg.
Kivo, who had been sought to record a statement on the assault, excused himself to make a call outside the police station. He then followed Ms Nyambura to the hospital while armed and shot her several times, killing her instantly.
Interestingly, the officer went back to the station and started shooting in all directions. When his colleagues tried to disarm him, he killed himself.
“During the attempts to disarm him, he turned the gun on himself. He shot himself in the chin. The bullet exited on the upper forehead. He died instantly,”
- Officer Kivo’s colleague at the Njoro Police Station.
From the station, the officer’s AK-47 Serial 4912292 was recovered with 11 rounds of ammunition. Grief-stricken relatives of the deceased woman were seen at the station Monday morning.
The bodies of the deceased were taken to the Egerton University mortuary awaiting post-mortem.
Crimes Of Passion
This is the latest tragic crime of passion involving an officer of the law. Last month, rogue cop Caroline Kangogo was found dead at her parents’ home after allegedly taking her own life. Kangogo is said to have lured different men, two of whom she had killed.
