Nyeri man courted trouble by chatting up two women

By Lydiah Nyawira | Jun 27th 2016 | 2 min read

Spiking of drinks is quickly gaining root in even not-so-big towns across the country. Many people tend to think the vice is the preserve of major towns, but not so for one James Mwangi of Nyeri town.

Mr Mwangi, a victim of the vice, is still reeling from the effects of the traumatic night.

“I was in the company of my colleagues at a Nyeri club. They decided to leave early after one too many for the night. After they left, I decided to sit at the bar counter and have one more drink and I was joined by two women,” Mwangi explained.

He started chatting with the two, unaware of the danger. He ordered a second round, and stepped out for a minute. He can’t tell what happened next.

“Nyeri town is very small and, therefore, I didn’t think someone would slip something in my drink but that is what happened,” Mwangi said.

He woke up in his house the next day at 1pm. He was woken up by his brother, who had come to check on him after he failed to show up for work.

“When I woke up, I realised my wallet, money, phone, laptops, tablet, home electronics and luggage had been stolen. My brother said when the two women called him soliciting money, he became suspicious,” Mwangi explained.

He added: “It was a very traumatising experience because, as much as I try to recall what happened, nothing comes to memory. I know they introduced themselves but I don’t remember their names, or what they looked like.”
