  • The family of the late Caroline Kangogo on Saturday, July 17, announced that they will not cremate her as she had wanted on a suicide note she wrote before she died.

    During a family gathering at her parents home in Nyawa village, Elgeyo Marakwet County, Kangogo's kin stated that they would give her an ordinary Christian send off.

    The family noted that cremation was against the cultures of the Keiyo Community.

    Kangogo's family, however, noted that they would respect all other wishes that the deceased had jotted down including taking care of her two children.

    The family spokesman reiterated that they were sorry to the two families that had lost their loved ones after allegedly being murdered by Kangogo.

    "We would have wanted to know what happened if she had surrendered," the family stated.

    Following her death, Kangogo had written a suicide note, apologising to her parents and children. She had also made some requests to her family.

    "To my parents, I am requesting my body to be cremated to end your suffering. Remember to take good care of my children. For the things in Kasarani, hire movers for safe delivery here.

    "To my beloved parents, siblings, children, colleagues, extended family in Ogweno's family - the officer she allegedly killed in Nakuru County - sorry for letting you down. Please find a place in your heart to forgive me," part of Kangogo's suicide note reads.

    She added that her divorce had pushed her to depression and asked the police force to those who were going through tough times.

    Kangogo had been at large for a period for two weeks since she allegedly shot and killed a police officer in Nakuru Police Station and a day later, a security officer at a hotel in Juja.
