Her fiance, Benjamin Kazungu had been using her phone to take pictures of her when the tragedy occurred and she was immediately swept away by raging waters before he could save her.
According to Kazungu, he had taken his girlfriend out for a picnic at the famous falls to enjoy the breathtaking sight of the waterfall.
He said that they had longed to hang out at the place as they both loved adventure but he did not know that it would be the last time he would ever see his girlfriend.
He recounted how he was taking photos of his fiancém unaware that the photos would be the last memory he would have of his fiancé.
He narrated how wonderful it was watching her pose with excitement for the pictures before she accidentally slipped into the flooded dam, disappearing into the waters as he tried unsuccessfully to save her.
I encountered the worst scene of my life. Seeing her sinking helplessly into the water and my effort proving futile breaks my heart even more
The family of the deceased have been camping at the falls since the sad incident with the hope of retrieving the body. Efforts by local divers to retrieve Jepkemoi’s body have been unsuccessful.
Jepkemoi’s brother Victor Kiptoo said:
We have been camping here since Sunday, local divers have been trying, but they are yet to get the body out.
My sister was jovial on the fateful the day before her death as she was anxiously waiting to go for a picnic with her lover.
