Prominent athletes joined hundreds of mourners at the funeral of Kenyan runner Agnes Tirop, who was stabbed to death in her home.
Her husband, Ibrahim Rotich, appeared in court this week as a suspect in her murder.
Ms. Tirop was buried on what would have been her 26th birthday.
Speakers at the funeral service have repeatedly called for an end to domestic violence. His mother, Dinah Tirop, also spoke.
“I don’t have much to say for today, I cried, I cried, all my tears are gone,” she said. “I leave my daughter my last farewell and ask God to give her her place”.
