While confirming the incident to Nairobi News Mr Adan Guyo, the DCIO Buruburu, said they will only make public the victim’s identity after informing his family.


“Its true and we are now trying to reach his family. That is all I can say for now,” Mr Guyo said.

The other officers are Ms Caroline Chepchirchir Chesire, who was murdered in Nakuru, and Ms Pauline Wangari who was murdered in Murang’a.
