William Sing’oei, a former deputy commandant at the GSU, was found dead in his room on Wednesday.
His body was discovered within the military facility in Embakasi, Nairobi.
He was attached to the National Command Centre for COVID-19.
It is still unclear under which circumstances the officer died.
Nairobi county commissioner Flora Mworoa said investigations underway to ascertain what might have led to his sudden death.
The body was later moved to the mortuary pending a postmortem test.
In January this year, a cop was found dead with the throat slit at his house in Embakasi, Nairobi.
In the wee hours of Wednesday morning, police were alerted that Cpl. Jonathan Korir Kipkemoi was groaning in pain.
“SOBB, SCCIO AND STAPOL Embakasi immediately proceeded to the scene and established that today (Wednesday) at around 0400hours No. 225231 APC Kanyale heard distressing noise from the deceased’s unit. He immediately peeped through a hole on the unit door and saw the deceased groaning in pain in a pool of blood,” a police report reads in part.
According to the report, the door was locked from the inside and had to be broken down.
However, by the time the officer managed to break in, his colleague is said to have already succumbed to the injuries on his neck.
In March last year, Deputy President William Ruto attended the burial of another police officer who was found dead at his home.
The body of Sgt. Kipyegon Kenei, who worked as a security officer at the DP’s Harambee Annex office in Nairobi, was discovered with a gunshot wound to the head.
The case is still under investigation.
