The family of the slain GSU officer, Harrison Onywoki, pointed fingers at a local hospital in Nakuru for its slow response in admitting the cop and administering first aid treatment.
According to the brother, Heziron Onwong’a, the hospital demanded a police abstract before attending to the officer who was killed on Saturday night, December 3.
While struggling to adhere to the hospital’s demands, the family rushed to a police station far from the health facility, further compounding the cop’s case.
“We carried my brother to the hospital for treatment, but they told us, he could not be attended to without an abstract,” lamented Onwong’a.

Upon arrival at the police station, the family lamented that his colleagues took more time to prepare the document to authorise the hospital to attend to the officer.
However, despite being provided with the police abstract, Onywoki succumbed to the multiple wounds sustained.
The victim was attacked by eight men armed with crude weapons in the company of his brothers on their way from watching a World Cup match.
Following the demise of their kin, the family called for immediate investigations to apprehend the gang of criminals that shot at the officer.
Nakuru County police commander, Peter Mwanzo, stated that several suspects were arrested and investigations were underway.
Notably, the Kenya Police eased the process of accessing abstracts and P3 forms online at no charge.
Via the National Police Service (NPS) website, victims can apply for the aforementioned documents whenever they lose their identity cards, driving licenses, or household goods, or when involved in an accident.
On the other hand, a P3 form is used to request medical assistance prior to health practitioners gauging an injury sustained in assault cases.
