Nairobiwire reports that the sisters had lunch together at a fast food joint in the city centre before Jedida went to get supplies for her business while Caroline left for some errands.
On the ill-fated day, Maryanne would later call Jedida at 7 pm to say that she was hanging out with Musando. Stating that her sister and the slain IEBC ICT manager had known each other for months, she however denied the pair were having an affair.
Jedida said she realized her sister was missing July 30, after her boyfriend called looking for her because her phone appeared to have been turned off.
“Yesterday after seeing the news on TV, I immediately knew it was my sister because she had last gone hanging out with Chris but I hadn’t heard from her,” Jedida said.
“So I called some of my friends and we went to City Mortuary. We did not even inform our parents before going.”
Her worst fears were confirmed, on getting to the morgue: “ I was scared and I let my two friends go inside while I stayed outside. I shortly heard my friend scream and I knew it was her,” said Jedida.
