Embu : Suspected Motorcycle Thief Stoned, Set On Fire By BodaBoda Operators

Wedding Boda operators stoned a suspected motorcycle thief and set his body on fire in front of the Huduma Center in Embu City. He picked up “the body” to take to the morgue when he made some movements.

The suspect was immediately taken to the Embu Teaching and Reference Hospital, where he is being treated for severe head injuries and burns to his hands and chest. He warned his colleagues not to take the law into their own hands. “I was told that the suspect was picked up from Mutunduri and taken to Embu City, where he revealed that he was part of a gang that killed two operators in Kamiu village three weeks ago,” Muchira warned wedding operators not to lynch suspected thieves.

It was found that the suspect had also announced that the stolen motorcycles were being sold in Thika town, but they were not. He finished the information when a group stoned him. “We have to allow the law to run its course and give the police and investigative authorities time to gather enough evidence to immobilize the perpetrators linked to the stolen bicycles,” added Muchira.

The operators, who seemed in a hurry to administer the mass justice system, were complicit. Embu West County Police Deputy Commander Samuel Gitau said his officers are investigating the incident.
