A former director at the National Police Service Charlton Muriithi is dead.

Muriithi died on Friday morning at Kenyatta National Hospital where he was admitted over cancer related complications.

He was the director of Kenya's National Focal Point on Illicit Small Arms and Light Weapons at the time of his death, which reports to the President's Office but is run by the police.

He was a Senior Assistant Inspector General of Police (SAIG), a position below that of the Deputy Inspector General of Police.

He was also the director of the Internal Affairs Unit (AIU), the commandant of traffic operations, and the Provincial Police Officer in North Eastern, among other police positions.

The deceased had been battling cancer complications and had been flown to South Africa for treatment three months ago.

After making little progress, he was flown back to Kenya and admitted to the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
