Over the weekend, friends and family gathered for a memorial ceremony in Oslo to remember the 54-year-old who was killed in a hit-and-run road accident last week.
The driver turned himself in two days after the January 31 incident and has since been charged with manslaughter. He admits hitting Kwirikia, who was riding his bicycle at the time, but insists that he is not guilty.
He states that he was driving well below the speed limit.
