  • Fugitive police officer Caroline Kangogo on Friday morning, July 16, shot herself dead at her parents home in Nyawa village Elgeyo Marakwet.

    Rift Valley Regional Commissioner George Natembeya confirmed the officer's demise.

    "The reports we are getting from our officers in Keiyo is that Caroline came home at around 5am in the morning. She, however, did not get inside the house and at around 7am, she got into the bathroom and killed herself," Natembeya stated.

    Natembeya added that it had been difficult to get a hold of Kangongo because she was an officer and was well versed with the police force.

    Kangogo was wanted for allegedly killing two men in a period of two days.

    On Sunday, July 4, Kangogo allegedly shot a police constable and left him dead in his car at Kasarani police station, Nakuru County.

    The next day, on Monday, July 5, she reportedly killed another man at Dedamax Hotel in Kimbo, Juja.

    Her parents, Barnaba Kipkoech Korir and Leah Jepkosgei Kangogo, had pleaded with her to surrender to the authorities and highlight her role in the murder of the two men.

    "She should surrender to the police because she is also an officer and is conversant with matters of the law," Korir had pleaded.

    Law Society of Kenya (LSK) had hired veteran lawyer John Khaminwa to bargain a deal with the police, represent Kangogo in court and have her released on bond.

    "I don't know her personally. I have never met her. Maybe she is familiar with me and we may have interacted in the court's precinct as I represented my clients. 

    "We (his law firm) offered to represent her in court and all she has to do is reach out to us," Khaminwa stated. 

    Kangongo had reportedly asked not to be detained in any police station as she feared for her life
