RIP: Emotional Moments As Popular Human Rights Activist is Laid to Rest

Sadness engulfed Lodwar county as human rights activist Elizabeth Ikaru Ibrahim was laid to rest. 

She was eulogized as a strong human rights defender and a champion for peace.

Members of the defenders coalition vowed to pursue the matter to ensure justice for their slain counterpart is served. They said that her life was cut short by her enemies because she boldly fought for the rights of the poor and voiceless people who were oppressed by the rich and powerful.

Elizabeth was murdered on 3rd January 2022 allegedly by her close neighbour over a suspected land row. Her body was found near her home badly stabbed on the chest using a knife. 

She had attended a funeral service when the suspect approached her and led her to the scene.

The suspect is still being held by the police after the court granted investigators 14 days to continue with the probe.

May Elizabeth rest in peace and may Justice be served.
