According to constable Samuel Ndung’u, who is attached to dog department, the OCS violently pushed him out of his office where he had gone to explain why he had not gone out on patrol with the dog.

Constable Ndung’u noted that he was later picked by some civilians who had visited the station following the arrest of their relatives and was taken to Chuka County Referral Hospital where it was discovered that he had a fractured knee cap.

“I had gone to explain to the OCS that I had not gone out to patrol with the dog that night because it was not feeling well. He started kicking me. He seemed drunk because he was very violent,” Ndungu stated.

An orthopaedic surgeon on Monday recommended that the knee had to be operated to fix the broken knee cap.
