Just In: What Kerio Valley Women Killed By Bandits Did Before She Met Her Tragic End.

The recent killing of Salina Jeruto, a nurse attendant at the Endo Mission Hospital in Marakwet East, has left the community in shock. For years, she had escaped death during bandit raids by raising her rosary and praying for her life. Unfortunately, on March 7, 2023, her luck ran out.

Jeruto was a remarkable woman, known for her compassion, hard work, and religious beliefs. Her death, along with that of another medical worker, is a stark reminder of the ongoing violence and insecurity in the Kerio Valley belt.

Despite the tragedy, her family takes comfort in knowing that she died clutching her rosary, a testament to her faith and courage. Her cousin, Stephen Amumwai, shared her story, highlighting her ability to cheat death on several occasions. On that fateful Tuesday, the bandit's gun jammed, giving her a fighting chance, but unfortunately, they were able to fire the third shot.

Jeruto's death is a tragedy, but her legacy will live on through the lives she touched and the memories she created. Her family and the community will remember her as a selfless and devoted nurse who gave her all to those in need. May she rest in peace.
