‘White Widow’ stories resurface in Lamu

03 June 2014, 11:09

Lamu - News about wanted terror suspect Samantha Lewthwaite, known as the 'White Widow', resurfaced after it emerged that a mysterious white woman was offered armed escort by police officers in a car that was used in the attack that left two soldiers dead in Lamu.

The two soldiers were killed by suspected Al-Sahabaab militants who attacked them while they were transporting food to a military camp, The Standard reports.

According to the revelation, the woman hired the car in April to visit Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) soldiers in Ras Kamboni.

Local County Commander Leonard Omollo confirmed that police officers had offered an escort to a woman in the area but the documents she produced did not show she was Lewthwaite.

Last month it was reported that Lewthwaite got married to a suspected warlord Hassan Maalim Ibrahim, also known as Sheikh Hassan who is a senior commander in the Al-Shabaab terror group.

Lewthwaite is wanted by Kenya and major security agencies, for her role in several terror incidences in the country and abroad including the Westgate Mall attack which left 67 people dead.

Kenya's security agencies had even suggested that she personally took part in the Westgate attacks though that link was later rubbished.
