    “While serving here, she was working as a court officer (to maintain order) and in court, we must have an officer who knows how to deal with prisoners and escorting them from the cell to the court. So far, there have been no issues with her,” she stated.

    She further noted that her commanders including OCS and OCPD had never recorded any cases of indiscipline against her.

    The officer, who has been accused of killing two men, hails from Elgeyo Marakwet County and according to public records, she scored a C- (minus) in her KCSE exams.

    The 34-year-old attended St Alphonsus Mutei Girls High School and completed in 2006. She has worked at Kaloleni Police Station and Kenya Police College before moving to Nakuru.

    “We do not understand what is happening but according to the actions, we think she is disturbed. I have a special team that is out there.

    “My appeal to Caro, just surrender, don’t cause more harm to people,” appealed the boss.

    The Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) launched a manhunt for her after accusing the corporal of murdering two men.

    The first victim, Constable John Ogweno, was found dead inside a car at Kasarani police station, Nakuru County.

    Ogweno was a member of the National Police Service since joining in 2015 from his career as the South Nyanza regional operations manager for Modern Coast bus company.

    The victim, who was aged 30 years, holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Economics and Statistics at the University of Nairobi.
