Police based in Makueni are investigating an incident where two teachers escaped from an irate mob after disappearing with Sh1 million they had received from a politician in Mtito Andei yesterday.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigation (DCI), the money was given to the two to share with others by a politician who was campaigning in the area but they escaped.
”The two teachers based at two local Primary Schools stormed Kambu police post and went straight behind the report office desk with dozens of motorbike riders hot in their pursuit. They took cover behind two police officers manning the desk pleading with them for protection,” stated DCI.
The boda boda riders alleged that instead of the two sharing the incentive with them and the womenfolk selling market merchandise, they took off with the money.
“The officers tried to calm down the unruly mob, some became impatient and started hurling projectiles at officers demanding that the two be released to face instant justice.
This forced the officers to call for reinforcement from Mtito Andei police station, which arrived immediately.
