Ivy Wangeci, the Moi University student who was murdered in Eldoret, will be laid to rest in Mahiga, Nyeri County on Thursday.

According to the family, over 1500 guests are expected at the funeral service.

A night vigil in honor of Wangechi was held on Wednesday night in Nyeri Town with youth calling out violence against women.

The 6th year medical student was hacked to death in broad daylight outside the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH) on April 9.

The suspect Naftali Kinuthia claims that he and Ivy Wangechi were in a relationship and she rejected him.

Kinuthia’s father has since offered an apology to the family of Wangechi but the mother said they are going through a difficult time.

It is alleged that he went to the university armed with an axe and knife in a sack and waited for her at the gate.
