The body of killer cop Caroline Kangogo has been moved to the Moi Teaching Referral Hospital funeral home for an autopsy.

The body of killer cop Caroline Kagongo is set to undergo a postmortem examination at Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital in Eldoret town.

Her remains left Iten on Tuesday morning to Eldoret where government pathologist Johansen Oduor is expected to lead the autopsy.

The body could not undergo postmortem examination at Iten County Morge after the funeral home cited the absence of a pathologist to carry out the exercise.

On Friday, Kangogo’s father protested the postponement of the autopsy saying he had everything set for burial.

Speaking to the media after being denied the body, a tearful Mzee Barnabas Kibor said the family had already concluded burial arrangements and therefore the burial has to be done on Saturday.

“Kufika leo watu wanasema hatuchukui mwili. Mnataka nani achukue na tumepanga kila kitu? Mimi nataka mtoto yangu, sina kesi na mtu. Mnataka akae hapa mpaka lini? (They told us today (Friday) that we cannot take the body. Whom do you want to take the body and we have already finished burial arrangements? I just want the body of my daughter. For how long should she stay here?)” he posed.

Mzee Kibor says they had agreed with DCI officers from the county that a postmortem examination will be done on Friday after which they will take the body for burial at their home in Nyawa Village, Elgeyo Marakwet county.

He faulted the authorities for failing to inform him prior to the set date of the postponement adding that it is impossible to cancel the burial date.

“Si mngeniambia ata jana tuhairishe. Siwezi kuja hapa nimejipanga alafu niambiwe siwezi pewa na sijui nani amefunga. Mnipee tu toto yangu niende nizike. (You should have told me on Thursday that we wouldn’t have the postmortem so that we cancel burial plans. I can’t come here ready to take the body only to be told that I cannot take her body and I don’t know who has blocked her release),” Mzee Kibor protested.

According to Kibor, he is no longer interested in the postmortem examination since he has no case against someone regarding the daughter’s death.
