A woman has been left completely heartbroken after her fiance was killed by some terrorists days to their wedding.
The tragic incident occurred when Al-Shabaab insurgents descended on the Kenyan town of Mandera town on Thursday, October 6.
According to reports, the terrorists mercilessly butchered six non-residents in Bulla area of the town.
Eyewitnesses disclosed that the attackers selected Christians and butchered them. Among those brutally killed in the attack was a middle-aged man identified as Evans Araka. Araka was a humanitarian aid worker working in Mandera with the Islamic Relief Kenya foundation.
He was to marry his fiancée, Rebecca, in November 16, 2016.
“Evans Araka, my love very hard to believe you’re gone… sitting here at Chiromo waiting…… everyone in tears am so torn apart…. confused… what will I do with the wedding gown….. what will I tell the children….. terrorism has robbed us,” Rebecca said.
Araka had even bought a wedding gown for his wife-to-be but the wedding did not happen. Today, Rebecca is at the Jiromo Mortuary waiting to receive her prospective husband, albeit lifeless.
