Classic 105 radio presenter Mike Mondo has narrated how he was mugged and left almost naked to his embarrassment as he was new in town.
Mike had just come from Mombasa where he grew up when the incident happened.
Talking bout his experience to Terry Muikamba said he had just relocated to Nairobi and was living with an aunt in Nairobi West.
‘Along Uhuru High way there is a bridge and down the bridge is a train station so the matatu I was in developed a mechanical problem.
The driver advised the passengers to wait as he looked for plan B but Mike would hear none of it.
The driver advised us to wait for another car.
So I was like ‘we are almost at the Nairobi West how about you give me back my Ksh 20 so that I can walk’. Mike told the conductor.’
The conductor headed to Mike Mondo’s request and gave him back his cash.
‘Once the conductor refunded my cash I started walking towards home.
I had not gone far before I heard someone pulling me by my pants.
I was ambushed by three people and taken to the cemeteries, I felt myself fly into the air.’
Mike who had come from a job-hunting mission only had 20 shillings on him.
‘I told them that I had no job and that I was going home after a tiring day of job searching.’
That did not deter the robbers as they quickly stripped him half-naked.
‘They took my clothes and only left me with a vest and boxers.
I walked from Makaburini to Nairobi West. One of the men was holding a knife.
That was the most embarrassing thing that has ever happened to me.
There is nothing as humiliating as other men undressing you.’
Terry Muikamba also shared her experience
‘I was talking on my phone on Jogoo road when I suddenly noticed blood oozing from my ear.
Someone stole had snatched my phone and in the process pulled my loop earrings.
My ear was badly hurt, almost tearing off’
Terry said that the incident had left her phobic about wearing loop earrings ever again.
