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.

Hundreds of mourners most of whom were dressed in black thronged her parent’s home to pay their last tributes among them; Gatundu South MP Moses Kuria, Othaya MP Gichuki Mugambi, Mathira MP Rigathi Gachagua, and Nyeri Woman Rep Rahab Mukami.

Family and friends eulogised the final year student as a dedicated doctor to-be and a jovial person with an infectious laughter.

Straight A's

The former Alliance Girls High School student was indeed a bright student who managed to score eight A’s in her KCSE exam before joining Moi University’s School of medicine.

Her result slip shows that Ivy had the following grades; English A-, Kiswahili A (Plain), Mathematics A (Plain) Biology A (Plain), Physics A (Plain), Chemistry A (Plain), CRE A (Plain), French A (Plain).
