Recce Squad officer shoots Girlfriend 53 times, kills himself


New details have emegerd on the  Recce Squad officer who used an M16 rifle to fire 53 bullets at his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself in his house at the headquarters in Ruiru.

According to police reports, the US-trained commando Kennedy Mwarabu shot Nthenya Katheka last Friday after she allegedly told him she was leaving him to get married to someone else.

The couple had earlier quarrled over  Sh420,000 Katheka allegedly took from him.

Investigations reveal that Mwarabu skipped work on Friday despite being assigned to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport.

Police also said they found Katheka’s Sim card crashed, which shows they might have argued over the contents on the phone.

According to neighbors, the two occasionally quarreled but no one knew exactly what they used to fight about.
