“So it was a very bad day for even our guests to have experienced that happen. I don’t know why it had to happen that way.” He said.

He said the shocking death paralyzed learning in the institution for two days as students said they could not attend the classes.

“How could they have gone to class without Ivy?”

He said the fraternity is yet to recover from the gruesome murder and prayed that God comforts the family and the university fraternity.

The university is still in mourning mood, he said.

“It is a kind of death that the entire nation is asking why?”

Ayieko represented the vice chancellor who had travelled out of the country.

The six-year medicine student at the Moi University in Eldoret was murdered on April 9 by a man alleged to be his boyfriend who struck her with an axe.

The suspect, Naftali Kinuthia who has appeared in an Eldoret court, claims that he and Ivy were in a relationship and she rejected him.

It is alleged that he went to the university armed with an axe and knife in a sack and waited for her at the gate.

The court directed that he be detained at Nauberi Police Station in Eldoret and be allowed to seek medical attention at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital during the period he is in custody.
