Homeboyz's radio presenter James Kiiru was robbed over the weekend after being drugged.
In an interview with Kalondu Musyimi, Kiiru said he felt unwell when he boarded a matatu in town to Ruiru.
"I sat next to this man who had a big jacket. At the time, my intuition was telling me to take an Uber. I had a laptop with me and I put it on the window side because I felt something was going on. I started feeling dizzy and unwell. The last place I remember seeing was TRM," he narrated.
Kiiru added, 'I don't know how I got to the stage but I know that some boda boda guys helped me. That wind that blew while I was on the boda boda helped me come to my senses."
He slept for hours;
"I woke up in the morning ate breakfast but was still not well. I then slept until 4 PM. When I took a bath, that's when my mind unlocked and I remembered what had transpired."
Kiiru was robbed of his phone and ID. This is not the first time the presenter has undergone almost a similar incident in a Matatu.
"Last year in December, I was robbed by a driver while sitting next to him. I gave out my fare to the conductor and he saw how much money I had. He pickpocketed my wallet. I lost Ksh 5K, my ATM, ID, and press card."
While not falling afoul of nasty thugs, Kiiru hosts the 'Jam Session' on Homeboyz Radio.
