Saturday April 13, 2019-The family of slain Moi University student, Ivy Wangechi has spoken about her HIV status
When she was killed by her ex-lover Naftali Kinuthia on Tuesday, social media was awash with the news that the sixth year medical student was HIV positive and she was taking Anti-Retro-viral drugs (ARVS).
But in a statement on Friday, Wangechi’s family rubbished claims that she was HIV positive.
Wangeci’s father said his family is hurt by the untrue reports circulating on social media and tests have been done on her daughter’s body.
“Please help me clean my daughter’s name. She was a decent, hardworking girl. The stories being circulated about her infecting her killer with HIV/Aids are untrue. This has been discounted by tests already done,” Paul Wainaina, her father, said.
According to the father, who is a secondary school head teacher, their daughter was raised in a Christian set up and could in no way live a dirty life.
“Ivy was brought up in a strict Christian background and is a very honest person. Her character cannot be questioned. She is a victim of a brutal murder and should not be vilified,” he added.
