Many Kenyans are suffering from depression and this has led to many of them taking dangerous decisions such as killing themselves. This has led to a lot of deaths by suicide. Today, a police officer has been reported dead by suicide.
The officer who has been identified as Allan Kihumba Njuguna and was stationed at Kerugoya police station. It is said that Njuguna had googled on his phone how to commit suicide. Additionally, Njuguna left a note to his wife saying that even if he died, the wife should know that he loved her.
Police service is among the leading professions where people are undergoing depression. It is now upon the government through the National Police Service to come up with relevant measures to help police officers overcome depression. One way of doing so is improving the police working environment by offering them good housing and improving their pay.
