Kangogo laid to rest
Deceased policewoman Caroline Kangogo was laid to rest at her father’s farm in Elgeyo Marakwet County on Thursday, July 29, 2021.
Her burial was attended by hundreds of mourners including her two children, neighbours, and colleagues who wore civilian attire.
“We have buried her the way we will bury someone else,” explained the family spokesman.
The spokesperson also clarified the family had disregarded supposed draft text messages in the deceased’s phone which explained her wish to be buried in a wedding dress.
“She was a Catholic and we held a farewell mass to pray for her. Everything has gone on well. We buried her in a dress with a net as we would do with any other woman. We have allowed our visitors to view the body because they knew the deceased. They wanted to pay their last respects and mourn him.”
“I do not know why her colleagues who are present are not in uniform but maybe it is because there are investigations going on about the two other deaths (associated with her). We ask the public to refrain from speculating about this death and especially on social media.
Kangogo hogged media headlines when she was accused of killing two men, including her colleagues, before disappearing earlier this month.
She was found dead in her father’s bathroom last week in what initial investigations have pointed to suicide.
