Enock revealed that at the time of their marriage, Viola was not in school as she was just a class eight dropout.

“At the time she was not in school but just at home. We loved each other and from there the rest is history." Tirop was quoted by a local media house.

It is from there that he encouraged her to complete her studies and after they had two daughters together in addition to the one he married her with, she accepted to go back to form1. She resumed her Studies in 2010 and Tirop accepted to finance her studies.

According to Tirop, Viola ended up scoring C+ in her 2014 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), this paved her way to her profession. She later joined Kisii University where she pursued Bachelor of Education Art (Christian Religious Education (CRE) and History.) And graduated in 2018.

Viola was just hopeful that she would get employed by the Teachers Service Commission, however, her dreams were cut shot by the rogue police officer who was on a mission to end lives.

“My wife was sure that in the next three weeks, she would get a calling letter to any school. That is why she came to the city. Little did I know that this would happen to her,” Emotional Tirop narrated.
