A woman who was robbed at gunpoint by four-member gang while on a bodaboda along Southern by-pass appeared before Kibera court to withdraw the robbery charge against them.

“I have forgiven them unconditionally and wanted to withdraw the case against them,” Stella Nasimiyu told Kibera court senior resident magistrate Charles Mwaniki.

Her application was granted in a move that saw the four; Herman Baraza, Simon Alfayo, Michael Marenya and Cliff Orwaka walk scot free after the charges were dropped.

The four had reportedly blocked a motorcyclist before he joined the highway and one of them grabbed Nasimiyu by the neck as another took away her mobile phones.

During the alleged robbery, the rider took off and left behind his bike after he was threatened.

The four then started dragging away the complainant from the road into the slums prompting her to scream for help.

But one of the suspected thugs fired in the air to scare her. Administration Police officers manning a nearby road construction site also fired scaring away the suspected robbers who let Nasimiyu go and took off.

The officers informed their colleagues at Kibera police station who proceeded to the scene and found Nasimiyu who narrated what had happened.

Police arrested two suspects and recovered one of Nasimiyu’s phones.

Police traced and arrested the other two but the pistol they were using in the alleged robbery was not recovered.
