The thief Kilimo, used the advantage of the missing on duty officer to ransacked a nearby Police room belonging to Sergeant Wycliffe Juma Makhanu, the Station’s OCPP.

Sergeant Makhanu said Kilimo stole his two fully loaded G3s that he had kept under his Bed.

Speaking to the investigator of this site, OCPP said he that Kilimo accessed his room through the opened fire escape area.

This is not the first time Police service has lost riffles to thugs from careless and absentee officers on duty.

Last month thugs broke into a Police Post in Nandi County and stole 3 AK47s and loaded magazines.

The police officers on duty left the station unnamed to go and  watch a European Champions League match between Manchester United and Barcelona.

It’s terribly bad and totally insecure for a society that government loaded guns are in untrusted hands of rogue civilians

It even makes it worse because those guns are being stolen from the Police, who are supposed to be the public protectors.

There is a thief out there with 2 loaded riffles. The same man who had been arrested because he wanted to commit suicide.

Police should be serious with their work and recover these guns before these maniacs commits a mass shooting attack on innocent people.
