A Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) student, Caroline Nyambura Gituma, was also arrested in her hostel room at the university's Juja Campus.

Ms Gituma is said to be Hillary's roommate and girlfriend. She was arrested after 50 packets of what is believed to have been heroin were found in her room.
