Richard Ng’eno, the estranged husband to Police constable Caroline Kangogo has spoken out day after  she allegedly fatally shot herself in the head at her parents’ home. Mr Nge’eno who is also a senior police officer spoke to a local daily on today  in response to allegations raised against him by Kangogo through her suicide note.

 A string of messages, suspected to have been authored by the late 34-year-old, had offered a sneak peek into her troubled life. Kangogo attributed her actions to depression occasioned by people close to her, including her former spouse Mr Richard Ng’eno. Kangogo’ in her alleged suicide note said her marriage to Ng’eno was rocked by turbulence, which led to its eventual collapse and disorder in her life.

However, while contacted by a local daily to give his side of the story , Mr Ngeno who is the scroll commandant in charge of Marine Unit at the Kenya Coast Guard said the news of her death shocked his family and children. He asked to be allowed time to process the happenings of the past two weeks.

“The kids are safe, but devastated .Let allow them go through it (mourning) peacefully, please,” he said, adding he was travelling to Bomet, and would give an elaborate interview later.

According to the messages, it was marital-related frustrations that pushed her to precarious levels of mental state. The messages said Kangogo had planned to fatally harm her spouse, but rescinded the decision after evaluating the possible impact of her actions
