Man loses employer’s car, sleeps for two days after woman spikes his drink

When Philip Wahome pulled over at Emali Town in Makueni County on Wednesday evening, he had just one mission in mind – to unwind after a day’s hard work.

A technician working with an engineering company contracted by a leading telco to maintain its infrastructure in the area, Mr Wahome joined unknown female revelers at Bridgeside Club and zeroed in on one who, according to the police, is the main suspect after he lost the company’s car and his mobile phones.

“He later boarded his said motor vehicle in company of unknown lady and went to Dorigate Pub with the intention of ordering a meal and booking a room to spend the night,” Emali OCPD Patrick Olieny said of the incident reported on Thursday.


“When they arrived at the pub, he took some drink which the lady had taken with her and allegedly lost consciousness until today (Friday) at about 10am when he found himself in a locked room in the pub without his two mobile phones (Samsung Prime Plus and Infinix Note) both valued at Sh35,000 and the motor vehicle keys,” the police boss further said.

A disoriented Mr Wahome struggled to come to terms with the fact that he had lost the company’s car, a Toyota Hilux double cabin pickup truck.

He reported the incident to his colleagues who rushed him to Sultan Sub-county hospital where he was treated for food poisoning, and taken to Emali Police Station.

On Friday, police were still searching for the vehicle through its tracking system and the woman believed to have spiked Mr Wahome’s drink.
