Traffic police ran over by speeding vehicle carrying smuggled goods

Police launch a manhunt for a driver whose vehicle hit a traffic officer to death at Koteko Road Block along Malaba-Bungoma Road.

 A police officer based at Amagoro Patrol base has been killed by a runaway vehicle at Koteko Road Block along Malaba-Bungoma Road in Teso North Sub County.

Eyewitnesses claimed that the driver disobeyed the police’s order to halt for inspection of the car, which was thought to be transporting contraband goods. 

Instead, it sped off, running over Police Constable Nancy Chepchumba.

Her body has since been moved to Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Eldoret for post-mortem.

The said vehicle sped off towards Bungoma from the Malaba Border at 3 am Monday.
