Total Views : 271

Sports Cabinet Secretary Amina Mohammed who is ironically an Ambassador by profession tossed aside all diplomacy as she made an illegal and unsubstantiated claim against Ibrahim Rotich who has been arrested as the main suspect in the murder of promising and world-known long-distance athlete, the late Agnes Tirop.   

While condoling with the late Tirop’s family as it finalises funeral arrangements, Amina Mohammed shared her condolences, and expressed dismay and regret at the senselessness of the heinous crime. She pointed out that it is against the law to kill, and also against religion too. She noted that her ministry had put in place structures which go into looking after the welfare of new young female athletes and their male counterparts as well. However, she then outright claimed that the late Agnes Tirop had been killed by her partner.

While this has been the common suspicion among most, so far Ibrahim Rotich remains an innocent suspect until proven guilty. It was not immediately clear whether the unexpected sweeping statement from Amina Mohammed represented the position of the government and the ministry, or if it was a personal statement. By the time of going to press, the Sports CS was yet to clarify her statement.

Slain athlete Agnes Tirop’s life was ended by a stab on the neck, an autopsy conducted had established.

The postmortem examination was done by two pathologists at the Iten County Referral Hospital (ICRH) mortuary. It also revealed that the international athlete was hit on the head with a blunt object.

The autopsy was done by Government pathologist Dr Dorothy Njeru, a family pathologist and witnessed by a forensic physician at the ICRH.

Relatives led by the late Agnes Tirop’s parents Vincent and Dina Tirop were present at the county funeral home from 8 am.

Other family members at the morgue were athlete’s brother Timothy Limo and cousin Jeremiah Sawe.

It was a long day as relatives sat patiently waiting for the autopsy to be done. At 3 pm, Dr Njeru arrived and conducted the postmortem for three hours.

A team of Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) officers from Nairobi, led by the head of homicide unit Martin Nyaguto, were present at the mortuary.
