- The two had allegedly been given a token of KSh1 million by a politician who was campaigning in the area earlier in the day.
Two Makueni-based teachers are lucky to have escaped the wrath of irate bodaboda riders on Monday evening after seeking refuge at a police post.
The teachers from two local primary schools fled to Kambu Police Post and went straight behind the report office desk with motorbike riders hot on their heels. Taking cover behind two surprised police officers manning the desk, they pleaded for protection from the angry mob.
The officers who had a difficult time trying to calm down the mob learnt that the two men had allegedly been given a token of KSh1 million by a politician who was campaigning in the area earlier in the day.
Allegedly, instead of the two sharing the money with them and the womenfolk selling market merchandise, they took off. As the officers tried to calm down the unruly mob, some became impatient and started hurling projectiles at them demanding that the two be released to face instant justice.
This forced the officers to call for reinforcement from Mtito ANdei Police Station, which arrived immediately. The mob was dispersed but some bodaboda riders who couldn’t come to terms with their loss were left peeping at the developments inside the police post.
Police have opened investigations into the incident.
