Angry villagers of Kenyagororo in Konoin sub county Kimulot ward of Bomet county stormed a house of a bodaboda thief this morning and razed down the whole house after their fears were confirmed.

The suspect has for long been mentioned but in low tones as many feared getting it wrong and paying the price.

On Sunday night a motorcycle of one of the villagers was stolen . The infuriated and desperate Hustler gathered courage and mobilized other villagers to raid the house of the suspect. They found several number plates of bodabodas , some positively identified from previous losses and to their shock even that of the last night victim was among those found.

The motorcycles were not found in the house, the suspect managed to escape the furry of the villagers and is at large. It's then that they brought down his house , with nothing being salvaged.

Cases of Bodaboda theft in the area has been on the rise and many have fallen victims of the notorious gang who injure the owners if they resist. The failure by the police to apprehend the suspects despite the information by the public is believed to be the cause of the decision.

In a previous operation by the police, it was established that the two wheeled locomotives were stolen and smuggled to the neighbouring countries where it's resold to unsuspecting buyers at lower costs.
