Kelvin Kiptum’s house

A new house being put up for World Marathon record holder Kelvin Kiptum is almost complete ahead of his burial on Friday. President William Ruto ordered the construction of the house at Kiptum’s farm, located at Naiberi in Uasin Gishu County.

Engineers and workers have camped at the site to complete the new home before Thursday, when the body will be removed from the Eldoret Hospital morgue. “We are on schedule and will complete the house by Thursday,”  said one of the engineers at the site.

At the same time, a team of homicide officers from DCI HQ arrived in Eldoret to step up the probe into the accident that caused the death of World Marathon record holder Kelvin Kiptum.

The team is visiting all the areas where Kiptum was last seen before the accident that claimed his life and that of his coach.

None of the officers in the homicide team could comment on the probe, but Elgeyo Marakwet County police commander Peter Mulinge said the investigations were going on well.

“We are going on with the investigations as required,”  said Mulinge.

This comes amid continuing speculation on the circumstances surrounding the accident.

Sources in the investigation team said they are reconstructing Kiptum’s last movements before the accident.

Kiptum and some friends are said to have visited several entertainment spots in Eldoret town just before the accident.

The homicide officers were also expected to visit the scene of the accident near Flax on Eldoret-Ravine Road.

They will also inspect the accident car, which was towed to the Kaptagat police station.

Later, the officers will also interrogate witnesses induction Sharon Kosgey who was the lone survivor of the accident.

President William Ruto is said to have demanded a full report on the accident that caused Police IG Japheth Koome to dispatch the homicide team.
