A police officer has been arrested for shooting and killing his boss and Muthithi OCS in unclear circumstances in Muranga County.
The two were in office yesterday evening when the incident happened.
The driver identified as constable Lelei used the OCS’ pistol to shoot him dead before he tried to escape.
The OCS Chief Inspector Henry Odongo was pronounced dead as he was being treated at a local hospital at about 8 pm while the assailant was arrested hours later, officials said.
It is not clear what caused the rift between the two leading to the shooting incident, Muranga police commander Naomi Ichami said.
Other officers said the assailant grabbed the OCS’ gun and shot him five times in the hands and stomach fatally wounding him.
