The woman who was shot dead on Miotoni Road, Nairobi, on Thursday morning has identified as Gabrielle Maina.

Maina is the headmistress of Hillcrest School in Karen.

The school’s Chairman Board of Governors Bob Kikuyu said she was killed as she returned home after dropping her son at a friend’s house.

“It is with great sadness and shock that we are writing to let you know that Gabrielle Maina has been tragically killed whilst out walking this morning,” Mr Kikuyu said in a message to parents.

“We cannot give more details at this time as police are investigating this criminal act.”

The school is set to re-open on Monday.
