A guy is struggling for his life in a Murang’a County hospital after a female lover spiked a drink he was drinking with an unknown chemical, rendering him comatose.
The man was prevented from losing his belongings to the woman who had just drugged his drink by the quick response of bartenders at a popular spot in Kenol, Murang’a county.
Last night, the man walked to the Small Villa gardens in Kenol with a woman with whom he had several drinks and made merry. The man, who worked for the Ministry of the Interior, had no idea that the woman had devised a devious plan to drain his bank accounts.
Later at around 11 pm, the man passed out as the observant waiters saw the daughter of jezebel gathering his belongings including ATM cards, Identity card and mobile phones.
Alarmed, they alerted their manager who called the Officer Commanding Kenol Police station, who responded immediately.
The man was rushed to hospital in critical condition, as the woman identified as Alice Wangechi, 37, was booked at Kenol police station on stupefying charges and the man’s documents recovered from her.
Wangechi’s arrest followed an expose on this page by DCI’s Comms detectives, warning men in rural areas of an influx of women whose drinks lacing enterprise had suffered a big blow in the city and were now scavenging in local pubs for easy prey.
The drug used to spike drinks known as ‘Tamuu’ is a depressant used to treat metal patients and has adverse effects especially when administered to men with pre-existing medical conditions such as high blood pressure.
As we appreciate the quick action by staff at Small Villa, other bar owners are asked to be on high alert and notify police officers immediately they notice such peculiarities at their business premises.
