Family and friends of Veronica Muthoni, the female occupant in the ill-fated chopper that crashed into Lake Nakuru, are mourning her sudden demise. Ms. Muthoni, who was a fresh graduate from Rift Valley Institute of Science and Technology, has been described by many as a jovial woman.
According to her family members and close friend, Esther, they learnt about her death on social media.
“I learnt that my friend had been involved in the crash from my Facebook account. I tried to contact her but her phone was not going through,” said Esther.
Muthoni’s father, who is yet to come to terms with the loss of his 22-year-old firstborn daughter in a family of three, also learnt about the sad news from her friend.
“We did not know if she was in the chopper until her friend told us that she has been campaigning for president Kenyatta in the South Rift region,” he told the media.
Although there are different media reports, some saying that Veronica Muthoni was a caterer in a hotel in Nakuru town while others indicate that she was jobless and searching for a job, she was a die-hard Jubilee supporter.
