This morning, new details have emerged on the wealth of the deceased Olympian who had amassed quite the fortune during her brief stint as a champion.

A family spokesperson who spoke to the media yesterday disclosed that the husband to the Olympic Champion, Emmanuel Rotich, had coerced her to registering everything in his name.

This put the family at a bit of a pickle as everything she owned was all in the name of the man who is alleged to have killed her.


"We appeal to the DCI and the government to make a follow-up and recover all her wealth. We are unable to get it back. We have looked at three land agreements between the two and we suspect that she was conned." The family spokesperson said.

Nandi Governor, Stephen Sang consoled with the family and promised that the wealth will be recovered and returned to the family off the late Olympic Champion.
