Identity of mystery woman in X-Trail drowning incident revealed
- Fridah Warau Kamuyu, 22, hailed from Mathioya, Murang’a County.
- She died alongside Tirus Maina Gikonyo on Tuesday January 17.
The identity of the mystery woman who drowned alongside a male friend at Titanic Dam in Kimbo, Kiambu County, on January 17 has been revealed.
Speaking to TV47 Digital, Juja OCPD Phyllis Muthoni confirmed the woman as 22-year-old Fridah Warau Kamuyu who hails from Mathioya, Murang’a County.
Warau died alongside Tirus Maina Gikonyo when the Nissan X-Trail they were in plunged into the dam at around 8:30pm on that fateful day.
Her body was retrieved from the dam on the night of the incident, while that of Tirus and the ill-fated car were fished out the following day. The young woman's body has been lying at the City Mortuary.
A postmortem report confirmed that Warau drowned. She also had bruises on her left arm.
Earlier, the late Maina's wife Margaret Kiiru had appealed to members of the public to volunteer information that would lead to the identification of the woman.
"I have no problem getting to know who her family is or who can help us get to know them so that they can also have closure,’’ Kiiru was quoted as saying.
The site where the incident happened is popular with young people. Popularly known as ‘Park 'N Chill’, it attracts those with a hedonistic bone. They just park their cars for booze and music, and, it's alleged, illicit sex.
Though Kiambu County Government has been talking tough about limiting access to the dam, a recent spot-check by TV47 Digital confirmed that the weekend fun is partying is still going on.
