Funeral Program For Late Agnes Tirop

Family and friends to the slain Olympian medalist Agnes Tirop on Friday gathered at Eldoret Hospital mortuary to commemorate her ahead of the burial set for Saturday.

Tirop's body has transported on Friday to her rural home in Mosoriot, Nandi County.

In the occasion which had feelings running high, the family couldn't grapple with the inauspicious demise of their adored one. 

For the fmaily, Saturday, October 23, 2021 will perpetually be a torturing day as it marks both the birth and entombment of their kinfolk. 

"We are here as close loved ones to do a parade for the public saints with the goal that everybody takes the stand praises Tirop once and for all since we'll never see her again," a companion said.

The death of Kenyan running star Agnes Tirop has thrown a spotlight on the pressures faced by the country's female athletes who pay a huge -- and often tragic -- price for their spectacular success in a male-dominated society.
