Caroline Kangogo, the fugitive police officer wanted for the murder of two men has shot and killed herself at her parents’ home in Elgeyo Marakwet.
Kangogo was wanted for the murders of fellow police officer and erstwhile lover John Ogweno, and Peter Ndwiga, who was shot dead at a lodging in Kimbo area, Thika Road.
Ogweno was found dead inside his car in Nakuru earlier this month. Ndwiga’s lifeless body was found lying on a bed in a pool of blood. He had a single gun shot wound on his head. Kangogo and Ndwiga were nabbed on the lodging’s CCTV camera making merry and going towards their room.
Following the two murders, DCI launched a manhunt for Kangogo who was described as a well-trained sharp-shooter “rogue, armed and dangerous.”
“We are cautioning members of the public, especially men, to be on the lookout for the rogue officer, who is luring men to her trap before executing them in cold blood,” the DCI said.
A national manhunt had been launched for Kangogo, with a special team of elite officers formed to ensure she is apprehended. Controversial Nairobi lawyer John Khaminwa had offered to represent Kangogo in court. He had aksed her to present herself at any of her law firm’s office for free legal advice and representation.
Details of Kangogo’s suicide are still scanty though had parents had sent out a message to her to surrender. An image of the suicide scene shows her slumped on a wall with a pistol beside her.
