A woman collapsed and died at the Salama police station on the evening of Wednesday, September 15, 2021 as she went to report her daughter’s bad behaviour to the police.
Consolata Mutua painfully recounted how her 19-year-old daughter had tormented her by not going home during school holidays.
The 50-year-old mother had frogmarched her daughter to the station accusing her of bad behaviour.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), Consolata begged the officers to intervene so that her daughter can mends her ways.
It is then that she became emotionally overwhelmed and collapsed.
Police officers and a well wisher tried to administer first aid and resuscitate her to no avail.
They rushed her to Kilungu Sub-county hospital where unfortunately, she passed away while undergoing treatment.
