Kenya: Baragoi Officer Buried in Teso

A victim of the Baragoi bandits attack was buried on Wednesday at Osuret village in Teso South after nearly two months.

A DNA test released a few days before Christmas enabled the identification of AP constable Emmanuel Emaide Orachi's body.

Chief Inspector Onyango Opiyo represented Acting AP Commandant Samuel Arachi at the burial that saw Emaide honoured with a 21-gun salute.

Based at Rumuruti, Emaide, 26, was among officers deployed in Baragoi who were killed while pursuing cattle rustlers at Suguta valley.
