Policeman commits suicide, asks colleagues to use funeral contributions to settle his debt

According to reports, a police officer assigned to the Changamwe Police Station in Mombasa, Kenya, committed suicide.

The police officer indicated in a letter to Officer Commanding Station (OCS) that his death should be declared natural because he no longer wishes to live.

The officer, whose identity has not been revealed, also urged his coworkers to donate money to a fellow officer known as sergeant Maina from the funds raised for his funeral expenses.

In his suicide letter, the police officer claimed to be in debt and included the phone numbers of two ladies, asking his OCS to send them money if contributions were made to his send-off.

He reportedly begged his supervisor to keep the affair private and protect his reputation in front of his family.

The following was written in the letter:

First of all I would like to thank you for the time we have worked together. My time to live on earth has come to an end, I do not have any other reason, just take it as natural death and take me home sir. Secondly, I would like you to form a donation WhatsApp group. Please out of that contribution, please submit Ksh24,000 to Sgt Maina. These two numbers borrowed me money; Jeruto – 0726#####5 -MPESA shop -17,000, Philipita – 0726#####1 – This lady she’s my classmate from class one to Form 4, alinisaidia na Ksh50k.
