He went ahead to describe tricks uses by conmen to steal from unsuspecting Kenyans anytime they board buses of matatus.
In a detailed Instagram post, Sonko narrates scenarios which conmen use nowadays.
“Kanairo Security alert. When you enter a bus or matatu don’t occupy the seat next to a woman sleeping off od she falls asleep as soon as you sit next to her. A woman pretends to be sleeping then all of a sudden, she starts screaming that somebody has taken her phone or even money while she was asleep. Then two or three gentlemen (Her gang) start raining slaps on you even before you start defending yourself,” part of his Instagram post read.
Further explaining the tricks used by these conmen, Sonko says that they use the sympathy that the woman will draw when she cries out for help claiming she has been mugged to make you pay for whatever she alleges to have been stolen from her.
“You will have a difficult time defending yourself because everybody will tend to sympathize with the crying ‘poor’ woman! You will then be forced to pay the woman the money which you didn’t steal,” he warned.
“If you enter a matatu and find a woman dozing off then occupy a different seat away from her. And if she sleeps off as soon as the matatu takes off ensure she is awake,” he added.
