On July 6, 2022, a drunk and armed Buruburu police officer whose video went viral committed suicide.
The body of the Kenyan police officer, who was seen in the video stumbling along the street while wearing his full uniform, was discovered hanging inside a burned-out old police canteen.

According to a police report confirming his demise,
“The body had no visible physical injuries and no suicide note was found. The deceased officer was the one whose clip went viral yesterday (Wednesday) after he was filmed being drunk and disorderly while in police uniform and disciplinary action had been taken against him.”
