A barmaid at Cornerstone Pub in Bombolulu has revealed final moment of Chief Inspector William Chepkwony who was reported dead on Tuesday morning.
The pub's barmaid Mary Kamene has revealed that she was on duty and helplessly witnessed as the officer struggled for his final breath.
According to K24 Digital, the barmaid said the deceased arrived at the pub at around 11 pm on Tuesday.
"He arrived here at around 11 pm Monday. After an hour or so, he left, but returned later at 4am Tuesday and ordered a few bottles of alcohol,” Kamene narrated as quoted by K24 Digital.
She went further and revealed that the deceased had told her that he was to leave to his home in few minutes after last drink before she headed for a room to sleep
However, she woke up later and found the deceased in pain with the whole of his body shaking uncontrollably before he eventually passed on.
“I felt sleepy, and went into a room in the pub to rest. All that while, the customer was seated in a tent outside the bar. He had told me that once he finishes taking his drinks, he would hail a bodaboda home.
“One hour later, I woke up and found Chepkwony writhing in pain. I suspected he was experiencing seizures. He was shrilling at the time as his body shook uncontrollably. Then, all of a sudden, his screams and body movements stopped. I touched him, but he was not responding. On looking up, I saw a passerby, whom I alerted. He came, examined Chepkwony’s pulse rate, and told me that he was already dead. We, thereafter, called police, who arrived and took the cop’s body to the Coast Provincial General Hospital mortuary,” narrated Kamene.
Kisauni Sub-County Police Commander, Julius Kiragu ruled out murder as the course of death for there were no signs of physical injuries.
A postmortem examination is expected to be conduced to determine the cause of his death.
