The woman who was shot dead on Miotoni Road, Nairobi, on Thursday morning has identified as Gabrielle Maina.
Maina is a headmistress of Hillcrest School in Karen.
The school’s Chairman Board of Governors Bob Kikuyu said she was killed as she returned to her 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.
