Nairobi - A woman whose picture has been making rounds on the social media on suspicion that she was Samantha Lewthwaite, a widow believed to have led the Westgate mall attack has denied the claims.
Henna, a Kenyan woman, who works as a marketing manager in a local company, was mistaken with Lewthwaite, nicknamed "the white widow" who is being sought by security agents for her involvement in terrorism activities, Daily Nation reports.
She says she was shopping with her two kids and driver when the attackers stormed the mall.
Her driver grabbed the kids as they ran for safety below a counter in the mall and told them not to move as they heard explosions and gunshots in the building.
She saw an injured woman groaning in pain on the floor and that is when she decided to help her contrary to the claims that she led the attack and managed to escape by pretending to assist the injured woman.
