Beware! Drink-spiking has returned to some of your favourite night clubs
Imagine going out to have a good time but waking up at an odd hour with no recollection of what happened. The only thing you remember is the last sip of your favorite drink.
It appears this old trick by thugs of drugging and robbing revelers has returned to many Kenyan night clubs, if the recent happenings and stories shared on social media is anything to go by.
The most startling thing is that some of these incident have happened matatus and some popular clubs in Nairobi.
And its not just happening to the ‘naive’ party goers, there have been cases of police officers falling victim to drink-spiking.
For instance, last month one police officer who is based at at Vigilance House was robbed of his valuables and cash at gunpoint after he had his drink spiked by two female companions.
The wily ‘spikers’ and their armed accomplices also stole the officer’s ATM cards and forced him to reveal the PIN numbers.
They would later go on a shopping spree at a supermarket in Donholm, Eastlands where they bought high-end household electronics totaling to Sh380,000 using the stolen ATM cards.
Then on Saturday, police arrested three individuals who were arraigned in court to answer to charges of spiking patrons in city clubs before robbing them of their motor vehicles.
A call by one tweep, who goes by the name Droid254, to the online community to share their experiences of drink-spiking has also opened up the flood gates to some of the most shocking and horrifying experiences by night revellers at the hands of these ‘spikers’.
Here are some of the stories Kenyans who’ve been drink-spiked before had to share:
