Tuesday, May 14, 2019- Police in Kisii have arrested a middle aged woman believed to be Violet Kemunto, the wife of Ali Gichunge, an Al Shabaab terrorist behind the Riverside attack in January.
Officers from Nyangusu Police Station, acting on a tip-off from members of the public arrested the suspect believed to be an Al Shabaab bride on Monday evening.
She was in the company of a Tanzanian man who did not have proper immigration documents.
Violet Kemunto alias Khadija has been on the run since the DusitD2 attack with intelligence sources indicating that she may have crossed over to Somalia after the attack that claimed over 20 lives.
However, Kisii County Commander Martin Kibet said that they were not certain of the woman's identity given that her documentation did not match that of the fugitive they have been pursuing.
The suspect’s documents indicate that she came to Kenya from Saudi Arabia in March.
