Suspected rapist kills himself by jumping out of moving police vehicle

His father who served as his surety was arrested on his behalf

His first arrest warrant was issued after he allegedly raped and killed Priscar Ojwang’ at Gogo Katuma Village in Homa Bay sub county on September 15, 2016.


He was charged at Homa Bay High Court and released on bond. In December 2017, he allegedly broke into a guest house in the same village where he stole various items. Nyambok was arrested, charged and released on another bond. He however absconded both cases which were active.

Homa Bay Sub-county Directorate of Criminal Investigations boss Joseph Tuksho said the suspect fled so as to defy court orders.

Con man

Later, Nyambok was allegedly found masquerading as a public health officer at Magina Village. He was conning residents of money on grounds that they would be arrested over failure to adhere to some sanitation requirements.

He was arrested but he jumped out of the vehicle when they were two kilometers away from Homa Bay police station.

“The suspect was with one police officer at the back seats of the vehicle but he decided to jump. He landed on the tarmacked road and sustained serious injuries on the head,” said Tuksho.
