Kenyans React to Tirop's Husband Arrest by the Police

Kenyans have praised the police for their efforts in apprehending Ibrahim Rotich, the husband of Kenyan long-distance athlete Agness Tirop, who had just competed in an Adidas event in Germany last month and won by breaking the women's only 10 km world record. Rotich had been named as a prime suspect in Tirop's murder. On Wednesday, Tirop's body was discovered in her bedroom at their home in Iten, Elgeyo Marakwet County.

On Thursday night, after a police manhunt, they were able to apprehend him in Changamwe Mombass at a police station within the Police Division. Rotich allegedly paid a visit to a relative in the area, but the relative allegedly tipped his bosses. He was apprehended while trying to flee the country.

Following Tirop's death, AK boss Jackson Tuwei decided to cancel the cross country events scheduled for next week in order to allow the country to mourn the World Championship medalist.
