There was panic at the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) Wednesday morning after a female police officer identified as Gaudencia Wausi fatally shot herself.
The officer, a Corporal in rank, is reported to have locked herself in the toilet before blowing her head off.
Police say the officer was on duty at the Control Room before the 10:00am incident.
It now emerges that the late officer– who went by the moniker Bella Caude Ian on Facebook – had foreboded her death with a chilling post lamenting how unnamed persons were “planning evil against her”.
“Life is so difficult when you live in a world where everybody is planning evil against you and what happens when you can’t hold it anymore and no more strength to support the few people who love and cherish you, you are left with no other option other than…. so help me God,” she wrote on Facebook Wednesday morning – before committing suicide.
Police are currently analyzing other messages she is reported to have left behind, including some sent to colleagues complaining of stress at work.
According to her colleagues, the deceased was on annual leave and recalled Wednesday. She leaves behind a school-going son.
Friends have taken to social media to express shock at Ms Wausi’s unexpected demise.
Wilberforce Bwire wrote on Ms Wausi’s timeline: “The initial training was meant to harden us even when things got #tougher, detail why did u have to turn your own rifle against yourself?”
