“He was found locked in his car along Juja Road, a few meters from the main entrance of the Airbase. Immediately the military police were informed and they rushed him to hospital where they were informed he had died,” said an officer at the Moi Airbase Police post.

The officer who sought anonymity due to protocol issues said Col. Waweru was alone in the car when the incident occurred around Monday 3 pm.
