Tecra Muigai, daughter daughter of Keroche Breweries Chairman Joseph Karanja and the CEO, Tabitha Karanja was laid to rest on Saturday, May 16, in a private burial in Naivasha.

The burial was attended by 100 people among them ODM leader Raila Odinga and his wife Ida Odinga, Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui, Ford Kenya leader Moses Wetang’ula, Vihiga Senator George Khaniri.

Tecra’s sister, Anerlisa Muigai while reading her eulogy titled 'Eight Point Tribute to my Soulmate', said the deceased death forced her to reflect in the meaning of life.

"Your exit from the stage in your prime has forced me to reflect on the meaning of life and the lives of other phenomenal figures who left early, who like you, lived their lives fully and with a burning urgency to accomplish a mission,” said Anerlisa.

Until her death, Tecra was the Strategy and Innovation Director at Keroche Breweries.

The Keroche Board and Directors, through a statement, described Tecra as brilliant adding that her passion and energy were the source of crucial innovations in enriching the company’s products.

Tecra was private person and this was revealed by her sister, Anerlisa Mungai who said that the deceased would at times introduce her as a friend because she did not like being in the limelight.

In an Instagram post about two months ago, Anerlisa posted a photo of her and Tecra saying that she doesn’t post her as often because she was a private person.

“My sister is so cold towards me. When we walk together then she sees a lot of people, she always leaves me like somebody she doesn’t know. 

A post-mortem conducted on Tecra’s body indicated that she died as a result of trauma to the left side of her face after she fell.

Tecra’s boyfriend, Omar Lali, who was with the deceased in Lamu county during her death, is being held by the DCI as investigations into the incident continue.
