An Administration Police officer who was last seen in December 2018 in Utawala estate has been found dead.

Mr Vincent Kemboi’s lifeless body was discovered at the Moi Referral Mortuary in Eldoret on Wednesday.

According to the family, Mr Kemboi was on December 25, 2018 involved in a fatal road accident along the Nakuru- Eldoret Highway.

The accident claimed three lives and left six others injured.

Mr Kemboi who also played rugby for the AP team was described as a great team player.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday, the rugby team described him as a dear friend.


“Kemboi was a dedicated and disciplined police officer, a team player player and a friend to many who knew him. Kemboi had a jovial spirit, he liked singing, we will miss his Kalenjin Gospel songs,” read the post.

In December last year, an alert about his demise emerged on various social media sites.

In the alert, the family explained that Kemboi disappeared while he was on his way to hospital after he fell ill.

“Vincent was feeling ill and was enroute to hospital alone, and may have been disoriented on his way there,” read the alert.
