Man Escorts Suspected 'Mchele Babe' to Police Station in Kitengela
On early December 13, residents in Kitengela awoke to the screams of a lady sandwiched between two men on a motorcycle. One of the victims on the motorcycle reported that the lady (mchele babe) had spiked his drink.
Onlookers tried to rescue the suspected lady but the man claimed that they could not release him as they were taking him to the police station. The lady was bleeding from a scratch on her forehead while the man who accused her had fresh bruises on his face.
Speaking with one of the media persons from one of the media houses in Kenya, the motorcycle rider revealed that the man had requested him to take them to Kitengela police station from one of the clubs at Baraka road. According to him, the man claimed that his drink had been spiked.
On arrival at the police station, the man could not leave the 'mchele babe' as he escorted him into the police station before the officers could come out to intervene in the situation.
According to a police report, the man, identified as Emmanuel Wamalwa, 32, stated that he had been following the woman after she allegedly stole money from his uncle two weeks ago in the Kitengela area after spiking his drink.
Wamalwa claimed the woman, who works as a barmaid, changed jobs following the incident. He also stated that he had been looking for the woman since the incident occurred and when he found her, he approached the place of his work as a customer.
"I have been looking for the woman and this morning I found her in a new pub. I went there as a customer and she tried to spike my drink before she became hostile and claimed I was reluctant to pay the bill,” Emmanuel stated.
The 'mchele babe' refuted the claims stating that the man had refused to settle a bill of Kshs. 1,750.
Many people have fallen victim to 'mchele babes' across the country and the police have warned Kenyans to be careful during this festive season.
