Two teachers made away with funds donated by a politician
On Monday, two teachers in Makueni, Eastern Kenya, escaped the wrath of motorcycle riders after trying to escape with $10000 donated by a local politician.
In a statement released by the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), two teachers based at two local Primary Schools stormed the Kambu police post. They went straight behind the report office desk with dozens of motorbike riders hot in their pursuit.
They took cover behind two surprised police officers manning the desk, pleading with them to protect them from the angry mob that was baying for their blood.
The officers who had difficulty trying to calm down the mob learnt that the two men seeking refuge behind their backs had allegedly been given a token of Sh1 Million ($10000) by a politician campaigning in the area earlier in the day.
The riders alleged that instead of the two sharing the incentive with them and the womenfolk selling market merchandise, they took off with the money.
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 a nearby police post.
“The mob was dispersed but pockets of the infuriated boda boda riders who couldn’t come to terms with the loss, remained peeping at the ongoings in the police post, from the periphery,” said DCI©Standard Gazette, 2021.
