Woman accused of phone theft ‘electrocuted’

NAIROBI, KENYA – Residents of Moi Girls slums in Chuka town, Tharaka-Nithi County are demanding justice for a woman who was reportedly electrocuted in a bar on Monday night after she was accused of stealing a mobile phone.

People who witnessed the 10pm incident told journalists that the 24-year-old woman only identified as Mercy, was stripped naked, beaten up and dragged out of a bar known as Mara’s Pub, then pushed onto an iron sheet roof which was connected to a live electric wire.

She died instantly.

ELECTRICITY

The eyewitness, who sought anonymity for fear of victimisation, said a bar maid identified as Victoria Makena, ordered for the switching on of electricity before Mercy was pushed from the stairs of the bar to the roof.

They said after realising that the woman had died and the people who had gathered there were threatening to lynch her, Ms Makena rushed to Chuka Police Station where she reported the incident.
