Ivy Wangechi's mother during her Burial

Ivy Wangechi’s mother Winifred Kingori, was beyond comfort as she was overwhelmed with grief during the burial ceremony of her daughter at their home in Mahiga, Nyeri County.

Mama Ivy, eulogized her slain daughter as her best friend whose life had been cut short at a very tender and promising age.

“Ivy, it is all darkness around me. I do not know where the next step will lead me,” she said.

Her grandmother Beatrice Wangechi, whom Ivy was named after, said she will bear the loss, as she had forgiven the her killer.

“I have forgiven the person who did this to you. I can’t ask him questions but God will. What gives me strength is knowledge even Jesus Christ died a painful death without committing a sin,” she said.

Ivy Wangechi’s sister Cheryl Githui said “I never thought I would lose you and it remains unreal. I do not know how to take up the role of first born and I do not think I am ready for it”.

The slain Moi University Student Ivy Wangechi was laid to rest on Thursday at her parent’s home in Mahiga, Nyeri County.
