Slain police officer John Ogweno was yesterday laid to rest in kaspul kabondo Homabay county.
Families, friends and workmates struggled to come to terms with the death of the officer who was found dead in his car almost two weeks ago.
The late officer was mourned by deputy inspector general of police Edward Mbugua as a hard-working man.
In a speech read by Nakuru east officer comanding station Phantom Analo, he said that the police force has lost a man of good morals.
His father Edward Ambani described him as a peace loving man even as he expressed optimism that the killers of his son will be arrested and made to face Justice.
On the other hand, Ogweno's first wife Juliet described him as a good and caring husband whose death has left a huge gap difficult to fill.
"He was a good husband. I don't know how life will be like without him" Said juliet as quoted by standard.

However, the second wife Audrey found it hard to eulogise him as she could barely speak.
According to the standard, the lady who was in distraught couldn't utter a word when she was asked to speak meaning she was deeply affected by the loss of her husband.
Homabay women representative Gladys Wanga who also attended Ogweno's funeral urged the ministry of interior to invest in police's mental health.
Ogweno was allegedly shot dead by another rogue police the late Carolyn kangogo whose burial in Elgeyo Marakwet county had to be postponed as the family awaits autopsy.
