The body of the late Careen Chepchumba Kili was laid to rest at her parents’ home in Kibirbei village Baraton sub location Nandi County.
Family, friends, residents and leaders attended the burial ceremony to pay their last respect to the 26 year old who was found dead in her apartment on Feb 14, 2012.
Those who addressed the ceremony described her as a jovial lady, hardworking and a good example to her 4 siblings as she is the first born of Mr. and Mrs. Hosea Kilu.
Until her death Careen was working at the Kenya Power and Lighting Company in the IT department.
Present during the occassion was Karega Mutahi who is the Permanent Secretary in the ministry of Local Government who delivered a message of condolence from Deputy Prime Minister Musalia Mudavadi.
In his message, the DPM wished those conducting the investigation of the late Careen to do it wisely and get the criminals who committed the act.
The MP for Mosop constituency David Koech addressed too and blamed the government for dragging in their investigation over the case.
He said that the government has the ability to protect the life of each citizen through providing security.
He added that the leaders will stand on the truth immediately the investigations are out and make sure the criminal is dealt with accordingly.
On behalf of the family, Careens' father Mr. Kilu said that they believe their daughter was murdered and asked people to avoid blaming and suspecting anyone until the investigations are out which he believes will be fair.
Among those who sent their condolences was Eugene Wamalwa, William Rutto and DPM Uhuru Kenyatta
