Police officer kills girlfriend

An Administration Police officer has killed his girlfriend in Nakuru County.

Nakuru town deputy OCPD Daniel Kitavi confirmed the incident that took place at their home in Kanu street.

This is not the first time such an incident has occurred.

On September 16 at Braidwood House in Nairobi, Constable Simon Njoroge Njau shot his girlfriend five times killing her after she turn down his marriage proposal.

The officer then shot himself too.

Also in Embakasi on February 22, an Administration Police officer shot and killed his colleague before killing himself.

Such incidences have sparked criticism regarding the mental state of police officers.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet is yet to make public the report by a task force formed to probe such killings that have been attributed to poor working conditions inter alia.
