Former Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko offered to take care of Caroline Kangogo's children if the family is not able to.

Sonko said that children are a blessing from the Lord and he would gladly educate the two children left behind by their mother who, according to police, committed suicide.

“My special request to her innocent family in Elgeyo marakwet kama mutalemewa kusomesha au kulea watoto wake please give them to me nikae nao nitawasomesha na kuwalea children are a blessing from God,” he wrote.

Further, Sonko weighed in on the actions of the cop who had been on the run for almost two weeks saying, although he did not support her actions, something might have gone wrong somewhere and her voice should have been heard.

“I don’t advocate for what Carolyn Kangogo did but nilipo post and said something could be wrong in her relationship with her two boyfriends she murdered, she was hunted like a devil through the media.

“What other justice was she to get? If the public caught with her, they would have lynched her without getting her side of the story because her case has been investigated and prosecuted through the court of public opinion. Now that she's no more everyone is sympathising with her,” said Sonko.

He appeared to poke holes into the theory that the fugitive cop committed suicide but thanked lawyers John Khaminwa and Cliff Ombeta for trying to reach out to Kangogo before her demise.

Suicide note

In an alleged suicide note that she left behind, Kangogo asked her family to take care of her kids, accusing her husband of cheating.

"Hi bro, please take good care of my kids. Their father is allegedly too much into women because every visit to Mombasa they could vow we go together because daddy's friends reportedly harass them by calling them names i.e his lovers.”

She requested to be buried in a white gown (that her husband could not afford) and asked her parents to cremate her body to end their suffering.

“To my people, it's my wedding day - dress me in a white gown that my husband could not afford.

“To my parents, I am requesting my body to be cremated to end your suffering. Remember to take good care of my children. For the things in Kasarani, hire movers for safe delivery here.”

John Ogweno

In the note, Kangogo described Ogweno- the officer she allegedly killed in Nakuru-  as her true love, mentioning how they were in touch in the spirit world even after his demise.

“For you my love JOHN OGWENO, our love was made in Heaven that's why since Monday, a day after the incident, you always embrace me with love and forgiveness and tell me it is well with your souldespite living in separate worlds. May our kids live in peace, love, forgiveness, success and being God-fearing. REST WELL AND SEE YOU SOON.

She also asked for forgiveness from her parents, siblings, children, colleagues and Ogweno’s family but was categorical that she does not owe anyone an apology over the death of Peter Njiru, the man she allegedly killed in a hotel along Thika road.

“To my beloved parents, siblings, children, colleagues, extended family in Ogweno's family - the officer she allegedly killed in Nakuru County - sorry for letting you down. Please find a place in your heart to forgive me. I really feel for your wife and kids. Sorry mama I didn't mean to.

“For Peter Njiru Ndigwa, I don’t owe anyone an apology. He allegedly conned me Sh1.5 million whereby Sh300,000 I borrowed from my father’s retirement benefits...then he arrogantly tells me he isn't paying and I even found him with a new Probox. Confirm with Corporal *, she has the cheques issued by Ndigwa. I served him right.

“Depression is real, please assist those you know. My divorce pushed me to be inhuman. My father disowned me due to a failed marriage. My husband was allegedly first in calling my father and my brother to cover up his mistakes and they all fell into his trap.

Since I met you, my husband, I have never known peace because of your mistreatments and constant chasing after women tortured me physically, mentally and the likes of Peter Ndigwa. Since everything happened, please take good care of our kids and don’t neglect them - as your first wife. Please don’t take advantage of love...current divorce

From Tuesday, I was in Mombasa and always saw you being picked and dropped. I wanted to kill you but I sympathised with my kids. I forgave you. I hope you do the same.

The status quo remains in force. My husband allegedly dumped me for another woman so it means my parents will bury my body, my two plots kindly as written in divorce contact - RK. 

For my divorce, contact RK agencies for the second title because one title is in my house in Kasarani.

To Kenya Police, I went through stress as the Senior Police Officer allegedly put me through hell when I resisted sex. He couldn't understand my son's asthmatic condition and my ulcers and admissions to the hospital. I hope you are now happy.

With the little money, you get please pay brother Chumbas full fees and rent because I was his hope to assist his parents and siblings. Kindly adhere to my instructions.
