A drunk and armed Buruburu police officer whose video trended on social media on Wednesday, July 6, 2022, has reportedly taken his own life.
The body of the Kenyan police officer who was spotted in full uniform in the video, staggering along the road, was found hanging inside an old police canteen that got burnt down a few years ago.
The station’s groundsman Salim Onteri found Constable Harrison Mugo's body hanging from the rafters and reported the matter to the station commander.
A police report confirming his death read;
“The body had no visible physical injuries and no su*cide note was found. The deceased officer was the one whose clip went viral yesterday (Wednesday) after he was filmed being drunk and disorderly while in police uniform and disciplinary action had been taken against him.”
