Three killed by irate mob following robbery incident
Tragedy struck in Makongeni area of Kiambu County when three men lost their lives after they were beaten to death and set ablaze by an irate mob. The men had reportedly snatched a handbag from a woman in the Polysack area, before escaping towards Thika town on a motorbike whose number plates were missing.
As fate would have it, the woman’s screams of distress caught the attention of boda boda riders and a few other young men who were idling at a nearby boda boda shed. The boda boda riders took off in hot pursuit of the fleeing trio, determined to bring them to justice.
While the trio was on the run, a matatu approached from the opposite direction, the trio swerved uncontrollably to avoid a head on collision. The boda boda riders, who descended on the hapless men with blows and kicks, accusing them of tarnishing their profession.
The police arrived too late to save the men. They recovered three knives belonging to the suspects, a mobile phone, and personal effects stolen from the victim. The bodies were taken to the General Kago hospital morgue to await identification by their kin.
