The Nakuru prison fraternity last night joined hands to raise funds to give one of their own a decent send-off.
At an event held at the Nakuru prison canteen, hundreds of prison wardens and other wellwishers joined hands to support the family of the late Carol Jepchirchir Chesire. The late PC Carol was a staff at the Nakuru Women’s prison.
Speakers who included senior members of the Prison management took the opportunity to condemn the heinous act and advised the wardens to seek dialogue in case of any differences.
Nakuru County Senator Susan Kihika had sent her message of condolences and support for the family.
“As the senator for Nakuru county, Hon. Susan Kihika sends her condolences to the family, friends and colleagues of the late Carol. She also takes the opportunity to condemn the act and any other act of violence against women or women,” said former MCA Edward Gitau representing the senator.
Carol met her brutal end on 3rd April 2019. The police recovered her body from a bush in Githioro village in Subukia.
“Were it not for a single shoe that was found by the roadside, maybe we would not have recovered her body yet,” said a senior officer from Nakuru prison.
The fundraiser done yesterday will assist in giving the fallen officer a decent send-off. She will be buried on 27th April in Kabarnet.
Other guests who joined the fundraiser to support the Nakuru prison fraternity were Nakuru DCIO and the Nairobi hospital (Nakuru branch) among others.
