Sad Day As Slain Olympian Medalist Is Laid To Rest On Her 26th Birthday, Burial Ceremony Underway

It is a sad day for thousands of Kenyans and the immediate family of the slain Olympian medalist Agnes Tirop as she is laid to rest on her birthday.

The late Agnes was born and raised at Mosoroit in Nandi county, out of nine children from the family she was successful and a breadwinner. She was also a mother of one.

During her being, she managed to travel to several countries for the benefit of her talent in the Olympics. She was a champion and a respected woman in society.

Her demise occurred several weeks after a man who she loved betrayed her and brutally murdered her. The investigation was carried out by detectives and the suspect by the name of Ibrahim Rotich was Nabbed while trying to flee out of the country.

He is detained in a cell waiting to be reined in court. The family of Tirop had earlier given out a stunning warning to their inlaws and informed them none to be seen at the burial ceremony.

It is uncertain that Agnes is being laid to rest on a day that she could be celebrating the day she was born. We hope that she has a better place to stay in Heaven. Rest in peace Agnes Tirop.
