  • News of the shooting of one of Nairobi's most dreaded gang member, Claire Mwaniki aka Addi Vybz, sparked a heated debate on social media as Kenyans engaged on why such a beauty queen would be involved in crime.

    From her looks few, in any, would have suspected that Ms Mwaniki was one of the members of the feared Gaza gang that has been terrorising residents of Kayole estate.

    She was shot dead a week ago, following fire exchange with police officers who ambushed her and three others robbing members of the public along Kangundo Road.


    2. Ruth Kamande

    When she took to the runway, reigning Miss Langata Prison Ruth Kamande captured the country with her stunning beauty.

    Many were left wondering why she was behind bars, but it emerged that she was jailed for allegedly killing her boyfriend by stabbing him 22 times.


    3. Lilian Wangui Rukwaro

    You will agree that former Miss Murang'a County, Lilian Wangui Rukwaro, is fearfully and wonderfully made.

    However,  Ms Rukwaro hit headlines in the past over allegations of being the brain behind the Simple Homes real estate scandal that saw Kenyans lose Sh500 Million.


    4. Roshanara Ebrahim

    Miss World Kenya 2015 winner, Roshanara Ebrahim found herself at the centre of controversy when she moved to court pursuing justice after her nude photos were leaked.

    The scandal raised eyebrows with Ashleys Kenya taking away the Miss World Kenya crown.


    5. Floviance Razan Owino

    Floviance Razan Owino dominated headlines in May 2015 when she was sentenced to death by hanging in China over allegations of drug trafficking.

    Many lamented the loss of a promising young beauty whose life was about to be cut short by the hangman's noose.


    6. Umur Khayr

    Few would expect an innocent-looking university student to be linked to terrorism. However, Umur Khayr, despite being Tanzanian, surprised the country when she was arrested in Kenya on her way to join ISIS terrorist group in the middle East.
