Policeman commits suicide over wife

An Eldoret central police station employee named Kiplagat Koskei reportedly committed suicide after learning that his estranged wife was supposedly having an extramarital affair.

The slain officer, who was characterised by Eldoret West police superintendent Edward Masibo as disciplined and hardworking, reportedly had longstanding marital issues with his wife.

Masibo said; 

“The officer had resorted to alcohol abuse after discovering that his wife had been unfaithful to him and it is unfortunate that we lost him through such circumstances.

“Sometimes it is good to share one’s problems with others so that you can be assisted instead of resorting to taking your own life.”

Neighbors told journalists that the deceased has been accusing his wife of infidelity which would often lead to physical fights. A neighnbor said; 

“The officer has been having a misunderstanding with his estranged wife for a long time which would often lead to a fistfight. We did not know it would also lead to the man committing suicide.” 

Corpse of the police officer has been transported from the scene of crime to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital mortuary.
