AP takes poison at Kalonzo's Tseikuru home

A police constable attached to the Critical Installations Protection Unit is believed to have committed suicide by taking poison. Confirming the incident, Kitui County Police Commander Leah Kithei said the incident happened at around 8.30am on Sunday at Wiper party leader Kalonzo Musyoka's rural home compound in Tseikuru.

The deceased was rushed to Mumoni Nursing Hospital in Tseikuru trading centre where he died while undergoing treatment.

Police have commenced investigations into the incident. The motive as to why the deceased police officer took poison is not yet known.

"Let's wait until the conclusion of the probe to come out. Sooner than later we will know what happened,", said Leah Kithei, the county police boss.

We could not establish how long the deceased officer worked at Mr Musyoka's rural home since the area sub county police commander Fredrick Onyango was said to be away on leave.

Speaking in her Kitui office, Kithei said she could not reveal the name of the deceased police officer because she was not sure if his next of kin had been informed of his demise.

In a separate incident, a middle-aged man from Kalimbui sublocation is recuperating at Tseikuru sub county hospital following an attempted suicide. Sources told MWINGI TIMES that he was rescued by relatives while trying to commit suicide.
