Inside the house where Dusit terror attacker lived with girlfriend in Guango Estate

One of the Al Shabaab terrorists who planned and executed the Dusit Hotel attack had been living a fairly comfortable life in a bungalow in Guango estate, Kiambu county.

Ali Salim Gichunge lived with his girlfriend Violet Kemunto Omwoyo, who had on Monday put up a post on a popular Facebook, seeking to sell household items as an emergency.

The post showed a couple who had a largely comfortable life with access to household items of a middle-class family.

They had a 49-inch television which they planned to sell at Sh55,000; a 7-seater couch being discarded at Sh75,000; and a double-door fridge going for Sh30,000.

Other items included a 28-litre oven microwave which they planned to sell at Sh15,000; bed and mattress being sold at Sh15,000; and a Sh6,000 TV stand.

Dusit Complex

The post was made through a pseudo name, Junior Red, indicated that the seller was relocating from Nairobi in the course of the week – perhaps aware of the suicide mission the terrorist was to undertake on Tuesday.

It also included shoes, male loafers and female designer heels.

Omwoyo was arrested on Tuesday night, a few hours after her boyfriend and four other terrorists raided the Dusit Complex in Nairobi’s Riverside area.

At least 21 people have died while several others were injured in the terror attack.
