One of the top students in the country in the 2013 Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE), Norah Jelagat Borus, was found dead on June 14, at her residence in Stanford University.
Mystery still surrounds Norah Jelagat’s death as the cause is yet to be known.
The deceased’s father, Dr Peter Borus told Nation that the university and other US authorities are conducting investigations.
“We are distraught as family and with heavy hearts, we ask for your prayers and seek your understanding and indulgence to allow us mourn privately. We are so far working well with Stanford University and relevant authorities to conclude the matter.”
Over the weekend, she was laid to rest at her father’s home in Elgeyo Marakwet.
Senator Kipchumba Murkomen shared photos from the sombre event tweeting,
“We laid to rest our sister and friend Norah Jelagat Borus. Fare thee Well Jela!”
Here are the photos.
