A source disclosed to Pulselive.co.ke that Anthony Lemayan Lenkisol committed suicide at Mwamba estate on the outskirts of Narok town on December 9, 2018.

Pistol

Lemayan is said to have used his Jericho pistol to kill himself.

The officer is suspected to have shot himself on the chin and the bullet exited through the head.

Speaking on the issue, his brother Evans Leteipa Maasai said the family was yet to come to terms with the loss.

Mr Maasai said that investigations on the matter were ongoing and they were yet to establish whether the case will be ruled out as a suicide case.

Cases of Police Suicide

There has been an increase of officers committing suicide which prompted the National Police Service Commission (NPSC) to establish the Counseling and Rehabilitation Centre.

“The commission has established the National Police Service Counselling and Rehabilitation Centre to assist the service in addressing psychosocial stress-related problems affecting the officers,” a statement read.

Pulselive.co.ke contacted police spokesperson Mr Charles Owino but he did not respond on the matter by the time of press.
