News on the murder of Miriam Chepchirchir of Oloitoktok Kenya Medical Training College (KMTC) at Kamukunji estate surfaced online today around 1.30 pm after a Facebook post by Emoo FM.
Emoo Fm announced through the post that the 22 year old student was killed her boyfriend Samson Kipkorir after an argument. Kipkorir is reported to have surrendered to the police after committing the crime.
The incident has attracted massive uproar from Kenyans on Facebook due to the many Gender Based Violence (GBV) related deaths in the recent past. In response to the post, a Facebook user by the name Rotich Philimon wrote that elders need to intervene and end this curse.
“We are losing it my people. GBV needs to be addressed seriously. We are burying Agnes Tirop only to receive similar news from another quarter of our land. This is really painful. Rest in peace Miriam,” Mwalimu Katebes Kibet also commented on the post.
We urge young women and men to embrace tolerance in relationships. Let’s remain united and end GBV. More photos of Chepchirchir are shown below and may she rest in peace. Condolences to her family and friends.
