Interior security Cabinet secretary Dr Fred Matiang’i confirming the incident regretted that the constable’s action might have been triggered by a domestic conflict.
Members of the public protested for the better part of yesterday against the incident as they called for the transfer of the area OCS.
A policeman at the station who spoke to People Daily on condition of anonymity said there were issues affecting their colleague for several months, but the station leadership should have detected and acted after the IPOA report.
It was not clear whether the officer was acting in response to a provocation or whether the attack had been premeditated.
The fact that they had kept an IPOA report against the officer without taking action greatly angered the residents of the area.
Dagoreti Police Boss Francis Wahome said that when they rushed to the scene of the crime it was too late since the man had already committed suicide.
