A GSU officer assigned to the President Uhuru's escort service has allegedly murdered his girlfriend, indentified as Anne Wanjohi in cold blood.
Constable Samuel Njoroge is said to have drawn his government issued gun and shot Ms Wanjohi at a cyber cafe located in Nairobi’s Central Business District area.
The bodyguard then tried attempting suicide and shot himself in the chest and left bicep. He is currently admitted at the Kenyatta Natonal Hospital (KNH), where he is being treated.
The deceased’s sister, Mary Wangari, said that Njoroge had proposed to her sister who declined, saying she was not ready for marriage. The cop is said to have threatened to kill her following the refusal.
“He kept insisting that he wanted to marry her immediately. This made Anne uncomfortable and she tried avoiding him,” Wangari told the Nation .
“She wanted to continue working so that she could save some money to enable her to join university. She was his girlfriend, but he insisted on marriage. I don’t know why he shot her, but I remember he had assaulted her on three occasions,” said Wangari.
