The body was transported to Mama Lucy Teaching and Referral Hospital’s morgue.

Police say he committed suicide hours after Inspector General of Police Hillary Mutyambai said he had ‘taken note’ of the video.

The National Police Service had also described the behavior as “unbecoming, unacceptable and unprofessional.”

“The National Police Service condemns it in the strongest terms possible. A uniformed police officer is a visible representation and face of government and is required to remain extremely disciplined and professional while on duty and off duty,” the statement read in part.

In the recent past, the number of officers committing suicide has been on the increase to an extent that in 2021 it caught the attention of President Uhuru Kenyatta.

A mental health awareness program conducted last year also revealed that a number of factors have contributed to many officers being affected mentally.

The factors include; bipolar, depression, schizophrenia, dementia and other psychoses.
