Benard Sivo shocked the airwaves when he killed his side chic in the most brutal manner. The 28-year-old police officer attached to Njoro Police Station sprayed Mary with over 15 bullets.
The young man identified as Police Constable Bernard Sivo assaulted his lover Mary Nyambura and fractured her right leg.
Mary was then admitted to Njoro Sub County Hospital for treatment. It was while she was receiving treatment that Bernard entered the hospital with an AK-47 rifle and shot her severally. Eyewitnesses counted over 15 bullets.
Unfortunately, she succumbed to the injuries. The report was made by the hospital administrator Mr. Timoth Njoroge at Njoro Police Station under OB. No. 2/23/08/2021.
On leaving the hospital, Bernard went berserk and started shooting aimlessly at the police station hence endangering his fellow officers. When his colleagues tried to disarm him in peace, he turned the gun to himself and shot himself on the chin.
The bullet pierced through his face and got out through the forehead, killing him instantly.
The gory scene was visited by the Sub County Commander, DCIO, OCS Njoro, and a team of officers from the scene of the crime in Nakuru Town.
Their bodies were moved to Egerton University Mortuary awaiting autopsy from the government pathologist. Bernard’s AK 47 rifle S/NO. 4912292 was recovered from the scene together with a magazine of 11 rounds of 7.62mm bullets. The case is now under active investigation.
His real wife Joyce Ndunge has for the first spoken of the unfortunate incident and narrates how he begged him to surrender his rifle after the incident but he refused and instead chose to end his misery by committing suicide.
Ndunge revealed that constable Benard Sivo called her after killing Mary to inform her that he had eliminated the person that had been wrecking their marriage.
That was the last time they talked and he was later found dead. Many of these sad cases involve police officers. The police fraternity deserves more and better than only counseling to fight depression. Kenyan government, the political class, and the NPS leadership have all decided to sit and watch.
