Days after Ivy Wangeci’s family said they are yet to get any message from her killer Naftali Kinuthia’s family- his father has extended an olive branch.

George Kinuthia, Naftali’s father says his family was shocked with the killing of Ivy- a sixth-year medical student at Moi University,  was brutally murdered on Tuesday last week in Eldoret by Naftali.

George while speaking to journalists outside the court on Monday, said his son has never had a criminal record since childhood and he doesn’t understand why he behaved that way.

He said he had heard about the relationship between Kinuthia and Ivy adding that his son has always been a reserved man most of the time.

“We are really sorry for what happened. This is really a difficult situation especially for the family of Ivy,” he said.

George who is a prominent businessman in Thika and hails from Gatanga says his family is yet to get in touch with Ivy’s family but they are in talks with elders and Church leaders to know how best to handle the situation.

Ivy will be buried on Thursday and George says they will send elders to the funeral adding that the two families knew each other from Thika town.
