Coach Gervais Hakizimana’s autopsy results rejected by family

It was Friday unusual as pathologist Dr. Benson Macharia conducted an autopsy on the body of the late Kelvin Kiptum’s coach Gervais Hakizimana at an Eldoret Hospital.

Dr. Macharia confirmed that the Rwandese coach succumbed to a head injury that he sustained at the same accident that claimed the life of his student Kelvin Kiptum.

“He died of an intercranial bleeding due to head injury which is consistent with head injuries. The neck and head had fractures, which are consistent with the accident report,” read the report.

After the results were released, the family of the coach rejected them saying the injuries sustained on Gervais Hakizimana were inconsistent with what they previously saw.

When we viewed him, he did not have fractures at all. We therefore reject this report.” said a niece to the deceased.

It is due to their dissatisfaction with the results that the family is requesting the government to investigate the accident.

“We want investigations commenced as we are not satisfied with the post-mortem report,” said the niece to the deceased.

The news comes at a time when Sharon Kosgei, the female passenger who survived the accident confirmed to the police that the marathon holder Kelvin Kiptum who was the driver of the ill fate car had lost control of the vehicle.
