Julius Yego Breaths Fire at Agnes Tirop’s Requiem Mass in Nandi

Javelin throw guru Julius Yego has today spoken angrily while referring to Ibrahim Rotich who recently murdered his wife and athlete Agnes Tirop during the requiem mass at St Michael's Academy Nyamisa, Nandi according to a Facebook post by Baringo Capital News.

“You could have eaten up the flesh of our daughter then, after you killed her so that we know you are man enough, instead of slaughtering and leaving the lifeless body behind to disturb our minds,” he said. Yego added that by him (Rotich) running away after the murder shows he is a coward.

Yego emphasized that if he were the one handling the case, the whole story would have been different. Rotich is still under police custody as investigations continue while awaiting to be formally charged with murder.

The long distance runner is set to be buried on Saturday even as campaigns against gender based violence increase. Many including the foreign champions in the field of athletics have condemned the killing of Tirop.

We hope her killer will be brought to justice. May she rest in peace.
