Caroline Kangogo, a policewoman who has been on the run for shooting two men has killed herself. Kangogo killed herself in Keiyo. Lawyer John Khaminwa had offered to represent her in court upon her arrest.

She has been on the run for days. Police officers were closing in on her. The police have confirmed that she shot herself at her parent’s home this morning.

Kangogo, 34 years old, was born in 1987 in Kamogich, Elgeyo Marakwet County. She attended Nyawa Primary school and later joined St Alphonsus Mutei Girls high school where she scored a mean grade of C- in 2006 shortly before joining the police force.

She has worked in three police stations, Kaloleni Police Station and Kenya Police College respectively before she was posted to Kasarani Police Station, Nakuru county where her work has been exemplary according to Nakuru County Police Commander, Beatrice Kiraguri.

Although there’s no clarity to this, she is said to have been married to a senior police officer attached to the Maritime Police Unit in Mombasa. The two later separated due to infidelity and only agreed to co-parent.

When corporal Caroline was first accused of a police constable John Ogweno of Kasarani police lines in Nakuru, many thought tris was just one of the many cases of love gone sour incidences that lead to murder.

According to a statement by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Corporal Caroline Kangogo traveled from Nakuru to Thika and lured a man to Dedamax Hotel in Kimbo, Juja at around 4 pm on Tuesday, July 6. She was caught on CCTV footage showing the moment she walked out of the hotel room after killing the man, who is suspected to be her lover.

The duo would stay in the room until midnight when Kangongo left, leaving the man’s lifeless body on the bed.

Caroline Kangogo Speaks From Her Hideout, Sets Conditions For Her Arrest

Published

on

Killer cop Caroline Kangogo has spoken out from her hideout, she has reached out to the multi agency task force tracking her down and listed one condition for her arrest. 

This comes after the Law Society of Kenya (LSK) hired veteran lawyer John Khaminwa to talk out a deal with the police, to represent her in court and have her released on bond.

Communication between the fugitive and the detectives detailed that Kangogo wished not to be detained in any police station as she feared for her life. 

Her fears were aligned with extrajudicial killings reportedly orchestrated in police cells, with multiple cases of mysterious suspect’s deaths being investigated in the recent past. 

Speaking  on Thursday, July 15, Khaminwa acknowledged that he had also heard of such reports alleging that Kangogo had listed conditions prior to turning herself in to the authorities.

However, he refuted that she had spoken to his law firm and declined to comment on whether the officer was in a position to list her choices and preferences, and negotiate for herself. 

“I don’t know her personally. I have never met her. Maybe she is familiar with me and we may have interacted in the court’s precinct as I represented my clients. 

“We (his law firm) offered to represent her in court and all she has to do is reach out to us,” Khaminwa stated. 

He added that Kangogo can also reach out to him, share her location so that he can pick her and escort her to the police after they surrender weapons at his offices. The weapon would, later on, be delivered to the law enforcers for ballistics and forensic analysis. 

This would avert an altercation between the wanted officer and detectives baying for her blood. Kangogo was accused of murdering two individuals, John Ogweno – a police constable in Nakuru, and Peter Ndigwa – a security expert and former police in Juja, Kiambu County. 

Earlier on, Kangogo was reported to be in contact with rogue police officers who vowed to protect her and bungle the case. She is reportedly the cleaner and top assassin of the cartel accused of protecting business owners, politicians, drug lords, highway robbers and carjackers. 

Khaminwa filed a suit barring the state from arresting Kangogo when she surrenders.

“We want Kangogo to remain free even after she surrenders to the authorities,” Khaminwa said on Wednesday, July 14.

Among the teams tracking her are the DCI Crime Research & Intelligence Bureau (CRIB), the military, the National Intelligence Service (NIS) and regular police drawn from the National Police Service (NPS)
