He urged the locals to be in the forefront in minimizing murder cases through sharing the stresses they might be going through with those they trust since killing is a serious offence.

The police commander added that cases of murder among the youth, especially those in relationships have been on the surge in the recent past possibly because they keep issues to themselves, which in the long run lead to depression and eventually resulting to murder cases.

“If not controlled, anger can lead to serious problems in our society. It is so unfortunate that we are losing many youths to unwarranted cases of murder. I am urging any agitated residents to always share their inner problem so that they can be advise on how to handle such situations however difficult,” said Omulo.
