It is another sad news to Kenya’s Police Unit & Security fraternity as a whole after a Police constable on Sunday 24th July 2016 committed suicide by murdering herself and her two children as well. The female Administration Police officer did this crime in her own house after she locked herself and children inside the house kitchen before setting herself and children ablaze using petroleum oil.
The three couldn’t be safeguarded on the grounds that the cop had locked and bolted the house from inside before resting herself with petrol at 10am on Sunday 24th July 2016.
Constable Judith Gallant had quite recently come back from leave and was planned to resume officially on duty on Monday 25th July 2016.
Mr Micahel Mutonyi said the officer was still new at the Homa Inlet station since her exchange from Kisumu two months back.
She came back to Homa bay from her home in Kisumu County on Friday 22nd July 2016.
Her partners said that the state of the anonymity of the episode may be connected to a family and domestic indifferences. Head Police Commandant boss of the camp asked other administration police officers not to take their own lives and rather share any difficulties they are confronting with their fellow friends, officers or associates for counseling, advice and backing.
“Our preliminary investigations reveal she wrote a message to a family member that she would take her own life if things are not settled amicably. We are waiting her family to settle before we start interrogating them about the
death,” he stated.
The commandant said among those to be met for investigations will be the constable’s better half who works with Homa Bay County government.
The bodies were moved to Homa Bay Referral Hospital funeral home.
