~ Occurrence Book report ~
- The arrested officer is currently charged in Bungoma Court on a different account where sometimes back together with the then DCIO to Bumula they allegedly trailed a lorry known to be common in the traffic of illegal goods. Upon entering a home where the lorry had parked in Musikoma village, the two officers demanded to inspect it a move that angered the owner prompting his family and neighbours into wanting to beat up the officers for harassment. On this day the lorry was apparently carrying sand
It was at this point that one person was accidentally shot in the leg leading to the court case where the two police officers were charged with causing grievous harm.
- His colleagues ironically insist that he is indeed an officer stationed at Bungoma South Police station and that he is a very good guy. They do not understand what drove him into such illegal acts.
