Jemima Oresha, 39, drowned while taking pictures at the world-famous Thomson Falls in Nyahururu town two weeks ago.
Her body has still not been retrieved from the River Ewaso Narok which is located at the bottom of the falls.
Jemima left behind three children.
Her eldest daughter, Emily Karani said,
“I’m the daughter of Jemima. She came to visit us, we have stayed for two weeks since she got lost. We are asking the government to please help us find her body.”
“If there is anyone who can get divers to come and help us retrieve our mother’s body please come and help us. We have tried everything but we haven’t been able to find our mother.”
Reminiscing about the last moments, Karani said,
“My mum was very happy when she came to visit us. I did not know it was to be her last days on earth. I have been left with the other children and I don’t have a job or any income. I’m begging anyone who can help us to help retrieve our mother’s body so we can settle our mind and know she has been found.”
“It is now 10 days later and her body still hasn’t been found, every day we are hopeful that they will go and find her but at the end of the day, they show up with empty hands not having gotten her. We would love to get her body so we can lay her to rest.”
