Her mother, Winfred King'ori, was beyond comfort as she was overwhelmed with grief. Moi University students who attended the funeral eulogised their slain colleague as a brilliant student who had left a mark and a gap to fill.

“The last few days have not been the same because you have left a void in the medical school. We shall always remember you," read a tribute by the Moi University students.

The leaders at the burial of Ms Wangeschi told the youth at the funeral that failed relationships were part of life and they should take it in stride.
