Comrades bid final farewell to slain Moi Medical student Ivy Wangechi

Ivy Wangechi will finally have rest.

The body of the Moi University student who was axed to death at the hands of her former partner Naftali Kinuthia will soon be laid to rest. The young Kenyan beauty and sixth year-medicine student was hacked to death earlier this week by her Kinuthia who attacked her with an axe within the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital. The man then tried to escape but was cornered and beaten up by boda-boda operators before he was rescued and handed over to police, as reported by The Sauce.

Friends and colleagues viewed the body at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital before the body was transferred to the Kenyatta University Referral Hospital. According to Nairobi News, Dean School of Medicine, Prof Lukoye Atwoli confirmed the varsity community was still “waiting for answers as to why this happened”.

“We gathered today to bid farewell to our colleague, our sister, and our daughter. We congregated with her family, students, staff, doctors to bid her farewell here but we will be joining the family as they make funeral arrangements. The School community is still heartbroken.

“We are still waiting to get answers as to why this happened. We wish the family strength and we hope we have strength ourselves to deal with this tragic event,” said Prof Atwoli.

The sad news that broke on 9th April 2019 saw Moi University School of Medicine respond swiftly as students and faculty mourned the death of Wangeci. According to the official Moi Medical Twitter account, University Health Services, Students Affairs, and Departments of Mental Health and Behavioral Sciences, as well as the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital Mental Health department have availed their services to offer support for students and staff in this time of grief.

Meanwhile, Nairobi County Women’s Representative Esther Pasarris took to Twitter to condole the family and friends of Wangeci. She went on to urge the relevant authorities to ensure justice prevailed in the gruesome murder of the doctor-to-be.
