Ms Norah Jelagat Borus, a Stanford University student, who died two weeks ago, will be buried on Saturday.

A family source revealed to the Nation that the body of the student arrived in the country on Monday morning from the United States.

“The body was flown into the country and taken to the Lee Funeral Home ahead of her burial at her father’s home in Sangurur village, Elgeyo-Marakwet this weekend," said the source.

The family was handed the body last week after police in the US concluded investigations into her death.

Efforts to reach the family spokesperson Joseph Maswan, who has been coordinating burial arrangements, did not bear fruit as he did not pick calls or respond to text messages sent to him.
