At the home of the late Ivy Wangechi, the 6th year Moi University student who was killed by her alleged lover, things look calm from the outside as some relatives lock themselves at their home in Phase 10 estate in Thika Sub county.
The estate looks quiet with few neighbors checking in and out of the house maybe to console the family. The mother and other relatives travelled early in the morning to Eldoret to confirm that their daughter is no longer with them.
Back in the estate, no one is willing to give any information about the family. After an hour of camping at the estate the community policing chairman at the gated estate emerges.
Justus Muthiani acknowledges that the family has been living in the estate since he became the chair, he describes Ivy as young and a hardworking lady who was about to graduate as a medical doctor this year.
Muthiani dispelled rumors circulating in social media that the killer was seen roaming around the estate. He urged Kenyans to give the family time to mourn as the police continues with the investigations.
Other residents (names withheld) who spoke expressed their shock after the news reached the estate; they explained how they were preparing to receive the young doctor in their estate.
