Police Constable Remko Madowo collapsed and died on Wednesday, September 9 while chewing miraa at an isolated place in Malava shopping centre in Kakamega North Sub-County.

Constable Remko Madowo, who had lately been shifted from Kabras Police Station in Kakamega County to Kongit police post in Bungoma County, had come from getting his belonging and redeployment letter when the event occurred.

A report filed under the OB Number 44/09/09/2020 at the Kabras Police Station at 10:15 pm Wednesday said Madowo had previously that night gone to Malava trading centre, where he bought miraa and started chewing while seated in a secluded place.

“He was joined by an unknown African male adult. Madowo asked him why he had come to join him. Immediately, the officer slapped the man twice. The man, thereafter, walked away, telling the officer that he would report the matter at Kabras Police Station the following day (Thursday, September 10),” says the report.

“The officer, thereafter, collapsed and fell on the ground. He was rushed to Malava Sub-County Hospital, where he was declared dead on arrival.”

Madowo’s body was taken to Kakamega County Teaching and Referral Hospital morgue awaiting postmortem.
