- Didmus Mong’are was wanted by police for allegedly obtaining money by false pretences.
- He is currently in hospital under police guard.
A suspect who jumped from a high-rise apartment in Embakasi, Nairobi, in a bid to evade arrest is receiving treatment at Mama Lucy Kibaki hospital.
Didmus Mong’are was wanted by police for allegedly obtaining money by false pretenses. “He leapt from his kitchen balcony at Amani apartments and landed on the ground with a thud breaking several of his limbs,” says the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).
The suspect was attempting to run away from police officers Rose Mwanzia and Geoffrey Koros who had stormed his house at 10am.
“However, in a bid to trick the officers, Mong’are emerged from his bedroom naked, prompting the officers to allow him time to dress up. But as fate would have it, after putting on a pair of denim pants and a checked shirt, Mong’are mischievously dashed to the kitchen and flew from the balcony!” writes DCI in its usual flowery language.
“Determined to accomplish her mission, Mwanzia almost followed suit but when she saw the suspect writhing on the ground in pain, opted to take the flight of stairs three at one go to restrain the suspect.”
He had jumped from the third floor.
DCI says the suspect received first aid from the officers before he was rushed to hospital for specialized attention.
“As Mong’are contends with his current condition, the Embakasi based officers are wishing him quick recovery, as they prepare his file so that he can answer to charges of obtaining money by false pretenses contrary to section 313 of the Penal code.”
