Makadara Law Courts: Senior Police Officer Who Shot Magistrate Identified as Londiani OCS

Police have identified the senior police officer who shot and seriously injured Magistrate Monica Kivuti.

According to a police report seen by WoK, the officer’s name is Sampson Kipchirchir Kipruto aged 55.

Kipruto is  the Officer Commanding Station (OCS) Londiani.

The police officer’s wife Jennifer Wairimu was accused in a case of obtaining money by false pretence amounting to KSh 2.9 million.

Wairimu had pleaded to be released on cash bail but the court did not grant it.

During the shooting incident, three police officers and a civilian were injured and rushed to hospital.

The police officer was killed by fellow officers after shooting the Magistrate.

The Kenya Police Service-now renamed to National Police Service-has over the years stubbornly remained at the apex of the most corrupt police service in the world.

Changes in ridiculous deep pocketed uniforms and a raft of other ‘reforms’ have not tamed runaway and almost institutionalized corruption in the force.

Officers will not respond to emergencies in time, if they do at all.

Police officers thrive on intimidation as they lack the pre-requisite investigative skills-or are unwilling to do so-to solve a crime.

Cases of extra-judicial killings are almost normalized and who can blame them.

While the clear majority are corrupt, a few-very few-have made it their business to protect and uphold the law.
