Bomet Senator Langat’s Bodyguard Arrested For Losing Gun In Embakasi

Peter Sigey, a police officer attached to Bomet senator Christopher Lang’at has been detained at Langata police station after allegedly losing his gun.

Sigey allegedly lost his firearm during a robbery incident in Embakasi.

He reported the incident at the Embakasi police station but failed to mention that he had lost the Ceska firearm of serial number B021194 which had 12 rounds of ammunition.

Sigey only made mention of some Sh10,000 that he lost during the incident.

“He did not mention of loss of firearm until he was summoned by his seniors at the camp when they got wind that the officer had lost a firearm,” read a report filed at the Lang’ata police station.

The officer only realized that he had lost the firearm when he got home after a night of heavy drinking.

Should an officer lose their gun or property issued to them by the state, then they will be prosecuted or required to pay for the item or property lost.
