Kelvin Kiptum’s coach to be Buried in Rwanda

World marathon record holder’s coach, Gervis Hakizimana will be buried in Rwanda on a date to be confirmed by the family as they came to witness the postmortem report which will not be made public.

This was revealed by a team of pathologists led by Dr Benson Macharia and DCI officers who were present at the hospital morgue where the postmortem took place with firm instructions from the family not to give out the further details to the public.

“In such a case, priority is given to the family and we go by what they say. They have asked me not to say anything to the media,” Dr Macharia said.

Family members who were present also declined to comment.

Thereafter the body will be flown to Nairobi and then to Kigali Rwanda ahead of burial by his family.

A brother to the coach who was also attending the postmortem exercise said they were yet to finalise burial plans.

Kelvin Kiptum and his coach died in a tragic road accident at Kaptagat areas along the Elgeyo Marakwet-Ravine road on Sunday night.
