Dusit terror suspects demanded for a hair-cut before suicide mission

Dusit terror suspects were anxious and fidgety in the last few minutes before they launched the attack that left them dead alongside 21 innocent victims.

This is according to salon manager Tracy Wanjiru who served them at the Dusit Complex, about fifteen minutes before they started their operation.

Wanjiru recalled that three of the attackers were rowdy and were in intense conversations on their mobile phones – perhaps in the last-minute communication with their co-conspirators.

They were bossy and could not follow instructions. But then I thought the customer is always right,” the salon manager told a local daily.

They initially wanted a hair cut but got impatient and instead asked for a hair dye after which they hurriedly paid in dollars, drawing protest from the salonist who insisted on Kenyan currency.

Minutes after they left, Wanjiru heard a blast that blew a human hand right outside her salon.

Wanjiru had experienced and survived the Westgate terror attack and quickly informed her colleague and a client that they were under attack.

She narrated that they quickly rushed to a small massage room where they locked themselves in and after an hour of waiting and panicking, police finally rescued them.
