A beautiful and young manager has been identified as one of the persons killed in the horrific terror attack in Kenya.
January 15 (Tuesday), will go down on history books as another dark day in Kenya when 21 lives were lost during a deadly terror attack at the 14 Riverside complex.
Many met their untimely deaths, it will take the country a pretty long time before coming to terms with their death. It will be worth nothing than the 21 who died in the heroic death in the face of terror among them, a bubbly young lady who worked as the dusitD2 Revenue director.
Bernadette Konjalo, a true definition of beauty with brains had her colourful career in the hospitality industry brought to a sudden end when terrorists shot right through her hands into her face.
“Words will never be enough, you were one resilient lady I ever knew,” wrote one of her friends.
When everyone was running to safety amidst gunshots and confusion, Konjalo put the lives of her colleagues and guests first. The Gatanga Girls’ High School alumni met her untimely death while directing her colleagues and guests to safety zones via designated exit zones.
Born in a family of four siblings hailing from Dondi village Siaya county in Kenya , Konjalo was the last born and a darling to many owing to her kindness and generosity.
Konjalo was not only a darling to her workmates and family, but also her former school mates who have seemingly been shocked by her sudden death. Having shown leadership skills from a tender age, Konjalo was assigned dinning hall prefect at Gatanga Girls’ High School.
According to her former school mates, she was the most loved among the prefects and easy to go to person. The ever-smiling girl worked at Tribe Hotel for six years before moving to dusitD2 Hotel in March, 2014.
While at dusitD2, she slowly rose up the ranks from the position of assistant front office manager to the director of revenue.
