Kenyan policeman dies after he shoots self in the mouth because of bad transfer
A Kenyan policeman has allegedly shot himself in the mouth in a town called Garissa on Tuesday because he was not transferred to a better place after serving in the town for three years.
The Standard reported that his colleagues said the officer was under stress after serving in the region for three years and instead of being transferred to a better place he was transferred to Ijara AP camp.
They said, “He was moved to near a post that was attacked by Al-shabaab late last year. He was stressed and left a note to show he was not happy.”
Meanwhile, the North Eastern Regional Coordinator, Mohamud Saleh, has said that investigations had begun on the matter.
According to the police, this kind of case has reportedly been on the rise in recent times due to stress in the service. Nevertheless, police officers’ relationships with their families, their colleagues, and seniors among other issues have been identified as some of the causes of such incidents.
