The post-2007 election violence saw at least 28 people burnt to death on January 1, 2008 during an arson attack at the Assemblies of God Church in Kiambaa, Eldoret.
Elizabeth Wangoi Kimunya, who has since become the the face of the 2007-2008 post-election chaos was there to witness.
In a picture which since hit the headlines , Elizabeth was pictured wailing while raising her left hand holding a shoe.
The curtains have finally fallen down on the hero who has lived with the traumatising memories for more than a decade after a long illness at the Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital (MTRH).
Wangui has reportedly been in and out of hospital since her lucky escape from Kenya Assemblies of God Pentecostal Church which saw her fellow worshipers burn into ashes.
Death of Elizabeth has since sparked memories of the tragic incident which for a while has been linked by a section of politicians who incited the violence.
While others were sending their condolences,a section of them went on cursing the incident and those involved in the massacre.
One Peter Kimani wrote;
“I remember vividly this video as she was praying ‘uuuuuiii Mwathani , ndugetikire tuthire…’ RIP Shosh.Those who did this heinous act will NEVER REST IN PEACE plus their generations. Why can’t those giving to God every Sunday rebuild Kiambaa Church first? ”
I remember vividly this video as she was praying ‘uuuuuiii Mwathani , ndugetikire tuthire…’ RIP Shosh😭
Those who did this heinous act will NEVER REST IN PEACE plus their generations.
Why can’t those giving to God every Sunday rebuild Kiambaa Church first?

See what a section of other Kenyans had to say;
Why is it that when she is dead it’s the time she becomes popular on tweeter? Most #Kenyans don’t care your current status while you are alive. Kenyans need to support their own while they live not making them popular on social media when they die… Smh!

People were killed in Naivasha and nobody has ever mention it, but it is because those talking about post-election comes from the ruling elite community

May her soul rest in peace. At least her pain is over. Those who did it and those who sent them will soon pay for it. We learn best from history.

May her soul rest in peace. God is watching the perpetrators of this heinous act. One day they will get the punishment in full.

This comes at a time when audio alleged to be of Jubilee’s general secretary linking deputy President William Ruto to the Kiambaa church massacre has emerged online.
In the leaked viral audio Tuju and Senator of Kiambu County, George Nyanja, Ruto was heard being castigated for his quest of funding churches. Nyancha who is more vocal in the leaked tape, claims that Ruto pretends to be holy yet he orchestrated the burning Kiambaa Church in the 200/2008 Post Election Violence which saw people burned alive while seeking refugee.
