Nairobi’s “prettiest thug” Claire Mwaniki was laid to rest in an unorthodox ceremony in her home in Kambirwa village, Murang’a County on Thursday.
Only a few her friends showed up in the ceremony for fear of being spotted by police officers whose presence was evident during the ceremony.
It was a rare ceremony as no eulogy program or tributes were read during the ceremony of the girl who was shot down by police officers in Nairobi’s Kayole estate after a gun engagement with the police.
Tense mood dominated the funeral ceremony with mourners seemingly suspicious of each other, while none of her immediate family members addressed the mourners.
Drama would later ensue after police stormed the ceremony and arrested a few individuals who were believed to be working with the lady gangster who terrorized residents of different estates in Nairobi.
Sources revealed that the 17-year-old Claire dropped out of form one in 2013 after she was punished by the school principal for an offense, and moved to Nairobi. She later got married to a famous Nairobi gangster who introduced her to a life of crime.
