The family, friends and colleagues of Sergeant Kipyegon Kenei who was murdered last month gathered in his Solai home for his final send-off.

Among those in attendance at the the event that is underway is Deputy President William Ruto in whose office the murdered police officer worked until his death.

Kenei was the Head of Security at the DP’s Harambee Annex office in Nairobi until his death when his body was found at his house in Imara Daima, Nairobi County, on February 20 with a gunshot wound on the head shortly after the fake Sh40 Billion fake arms scandal was unearthed.

The couple that had two children was to be married in August before death struck. Below are photos of the event that is underway in Solai, Nakuru County.
