A prison warden on Wednesday night is reported to have blown up his head inside his house in Trans Nzoia County.
It is reported that the Kenya Prisons warden who was on a night shift is said to have sneaked from dduty with a G-3 riffle which is reportedly the tool he used to end his life.
The reports have been confirmed by Kitale Medium Prison Officer in charge, Julius Kaliakamur.
“Elias was on duty yesterday night. He then sneaked out with his firearm, later it was realized that he was not there and we got concerned. We rushed to his house in Lessos area and found him dead” Kaliakamur said.
Notably, Too’s caretaker, Immaculate Patricia stated that the service man could have taken his life following workplace challenges.
“Too did not speak much. I realized he could be financially strained when he failed to pay his rent for two months although delays in paying of rent were common with him” Immaculate said.
