Police officers in Nyali, Mombasa County, are holding a woman who was part of a gang that spiked alcohol belonging to Kisumu County officials.
Leah Mwenja, 31, however unknowingly drank the spiked alcohol as well and passed out.
Mwenja was found unconscious together with 3 men at Shikara apartments where the men had booked themselves for a working holiday.
The three men believed to be senior officials at the physical planning department in Kisumu and an MCA were enjoying their drinks at the Maasai beach restaurant along when they were approached by the women.
Wowed by their stunning looks, they beckoned the ladies to join their table. Little did they know that they were inviting a woman with an intention to steal from them.
“As the soothing ocean breeze swept across the bar that overlooks the Indian ocean, the county officials bought as many rounds of booze popurlaly know as ‘kuchafua meza’ and they made merry up-to the devils hours,” read part of the statement from the DCI.
“When they hit fever pitch minutes to 3am, the ladies whispered to the county officials that it was about time they moved to their rooms to crown their ‘sherehe since Dawn was beckoning! They excitedly staggered from the bar for the room with more drinks, not knowing that they were going for their kiss of death,” their statement added.
Mwenja was found unconscious alongside them, with her two other accomplices having fled however.
