Undercover cop Hessy Wa Dandora is in hot pursuit of a suspected notorious thug who was once sprayed with several bullets but managed to recover and is now back in crime.
The suspect known as Duncan Ochieng was once shot six times last year by police officers in Dandora but did not die.
Hessy says that the incident happened after Ochieng fired a bullet at police officers who were pursuing him for robbery.
“The incident took place late last year within Dandora, it was around 2am. On that day, he fired one bullet at police officers then akapatana nazo zile mzito then jumped into Nairobi, izo mashimo zikajaa maji ya sewage but the guy survived, ” wrote Hessy.
According to Hessy, the suspect did not even rest. He says that he instead extended his areas of operation from Dandora to Sunton and Kasarani areas.
“Its very unfortunate that he’s still alive, coz am sure he will be back soon and more lethal. Very unfortunate! ” he further wrote.
Word on the street has it that thugs have always sought the help of witch-doctors to protect themselves from the police and bullets.
One reformed thug who spoke to Ghetto Radio says that some witch doctors visited by these thugs live in Nairobi while others are operating from the countryside.
Incidents of police officers recovering juju paraphernalia from bodies of these suspects have also been witnessed in the country.
Some thugs have however always sought divine intervention before even going for robbery missions.
This is seen as most have always switched religion from Christianity to Muslim, a situation that once saw a Muslim Kadhi in Majengo slums in Nairobi area state that he will never preside over a burial of a slain suspected thug.
