What should have been a cheerful night of merrymaking to usher in the new year, turned into pure agony for a middle-aged man who walked into a bar in the Eastlands area of Nairobi with a briefcase full of Ksh. 160,000 cash.
The man allegedly sat alone in a corner and ordered beer and roast meat as he looked around surveying a group of women who were also drinking at an adjoining table. He soon took interest after a couple of beers and asked the women to join him.
The partying picked tempo as the new year was ushered in, the man kept showing off bundles of notes in his briefcase. Little did he know that he had just landed himself in the lap of ruthless “vultures” Once he took a break for the washroom the women went to work, joined by two men. The monied man’s drink was heavily spiked with a substance commonly termed as “mchele”. The man gobbled his drink without suspecting anything.
Within minutes he was snoring heavily and his drink-mates assumed the role of good samaritans escorting their tired comrade “home”. They later pocked all the cash from the briefcase before driving with the man to ATM to drain more money from his bank accounts. They even transferred Ksh. 150,000 from his Mpesa account and even borrowed Ksh. 15,000 from Mshwari! The middle-aged man who is a wheat farmer in Narok later admitted that he lost more in the New Year heist.
