CS Fred Matiangi’s Remarks Following Bodyguard’s Suicide


Interior CS Fred Matiang’I has expressed his sorrow over the death of a police constable attached to his ministry and his wife, who was a traffic officer attached in Kilimani Police Station.

He described it as shocking and intends to pay greater attention to the psychosocial challenges facing young officers in the country. 

According to police IG Mutyambai, Hudson Wakise was accused of infidelity by his wife Pauline Wakasa; the argument between the two got heated making Hudson fire several rounds on his wife’s chest before turning the pistol on himself and dying instantly. 

Luckily, their two children aged five and two years escaped unhurt but the trauma is visible on both kids. 

Suicide cases among police officers have been on the rise since last year; due to this, both high ranking officers and Kenyan Citizens are pushing for a program that will run constant checkups of officer’s mental health to ensure they are not a danger to themselves, their families and the society.
