“Mchele” Kwa Bus; Four Suspects In Custody After Stupefying Passengers

Four people are in custody after police officers based at Kabete Police Station detained them on suspicion of stupefying passengers in a Kisumu-bound bus with an unknown substance.

The four suspects, Stephen Odero, Benson Odero, Joshua Orengo, and Harrison Nyamu who are also accused of theft, in addition, tried to stupefy themselves in a bid to destroy evidence.

According to a police report, a bus traveling to the capital city from Kisumu had been driven into the station after its driver noticed from the rearview mirror that everyone was fast asleep snoring save for two people who were moving from seat to seat.

The driver then got alarmed and immediately detoured to the police station situated along the busy Nairobi-Nakuru highway.

Attempts by the two thugs to jump from the fast-moving bus turned futile after the bus stormed the police station at a high speed prompting police officers on sentry duties to take positions in case of any eventuality.

As the bus screeched to a halt, the driver Emmanuel Barasa, leaped from his door and dashed towards the report office shouting that the bus was under attack. The officers responded swiftly by throwing a cordon around the bus and ordering everyone out.

The police at the station noted that it was a shocking scene more than half the occupants were sleepy and drowsy, reeling from the effects of a stupefying substance that had been administered to them.

Additionally, most of them had lost their valuables including laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and cash money among other valuables.

The officers managed to single out four suspects in whose possession the valuables were recovered.

However, as the officers were booking them, the suspects suddenly become drowsy, incoherent, and very drunk, forcing the law enforcers to first rush them to a nearby hospital for medical examination. It is at the hospital that it was discovered that the suspects who were sweating profusely, had taken a dose of their own medicine after ingesting the remaining ‘mchele’, in a bid to destroy the exhibit.

Back at the station, the bus was allowed to continue with the rest of the journey, but with a word of caution to the passengers who were advised to seek medication on arrival.

Meanwhile, the four suspects are currently in custody and will be arraigned on Monday.
