Police Collapses and Dies During Training At Embakasi Training Camp
Constable Elijah Kogi Waithaka who was working at Matunda police station was undergoing training at the camp when he collapsed and died on the spot. A postmortem report is expected soon after examining the cause of the death on Monday.
There have been occasional deaths in the National police training camps, National Youth trainings but the cause of the same has never been clear to the public. Although your guess is as right as mine.
He was undergoing a National police service special operation induction cause when he collapsed maybe due to fatigue, he was attended to by the camp medics who were within the camp’s facility.
The father of the deceased said the autopsy is yet to be put out on Monday at Kenyatta University mortuary where the body of the deceased was taken. “I will be in Nairobi today to assess the postmortem; I have been in Nairobi ever since the occurrence of the incident. I learnt of his death but I was forced to go home to consult the clergy regarding the burial arrangements.
The officer who has been in service for at least ten years grew up in molo Nakuru county. Kenyans have compassionately extended their condolences to the fallen soldier, more so his young family at their rural home.
