He then decided to drive himself after failing to get a volunteer to take charge.
“He seemed so drunk such the vehicle was even staggering almost hitting people and buildings” the source said.
Nginyang OCPD James Musyimi confirmed the incident saying the driver was negotiating a diversion while embarking from Chemolingot town.
He said the driver was alone in the vehicle at the time and he lost control before rolling several times. He then died on the spot, Musyimi said.
The incident comes at a time residents in Chemolingot and Nginyang town claim harsh police harassment.
“Most of the officers get drunk and start disturbing and arresting innocent people in the name of holding normal night patrols” resident said.
