Details of Ms Violet Kemunto who had graduated with a Journalism and Public Relations degree from Masinde Muliro University of Science and Technology, a year earlier, in 2015 have emerged.

The Daily Nation revealed that Ms Kemunto might have entered into Somalia, which is an Al Shabaab turf, hours before the attack on Dusit hotel complex on Tuesday.

Her friends and former classmates described her as a quiet person who always wore a hijab although her names were Christian like.

Friends tell all

According to those who knew her in University, Ms Kemunto had three close friends and a boyfriend who studied the same course as her.

After graduating from campus, Ms Kemunto is said to have found a job at a phone's shop before she disappeared from the social scene.

Her friends heard from her when she was organizing a wedding in 2018.

Radicalization

Reports claim that Ms Kemunto had described herself on her WhatsApp profile as an Al Shabaab bride and a picture of a woman in a niqab laced in blood set as her profile picture.

On Monday, Ms Kemunto is believed to have posted goods for sale on her Facebook account indicating that they were moving from Nairobi this week.

Sleuths are believed to be investigating Ms Kemunto's activities to establish her involvement in the heinous attack at the Dusit hotel complex.

It is only a matter of time before police unveil whether she was a willing participant or a victim of circumstances.
