Contacted, Laikipia East Police boss Mutoro Kizito said that investigations into the circumstances surrounding the death of the mother of two on October 29 were ongoing.

Ms Gitu was in the company of her friends when she allegedly slipped and fell into the river.

“I don’t know what to say, I don’t know what will take away this pain my love, I hope you will one day soon come back to see us, come and make the sweet tea and special vegetables you cooked for me,” he wrote.
