A thief has cheated death by a whisker early this morning, after some good Samaritans whisked him off an angry mob that gave him bad beating after he was found in possession of stolen property.
The culprit, who appeared as a relatively young lad was intercepted by the mob around Jubilee College building in Kitui Town after allegedly stealing a car battery and radio from Jubilee College.
The mob that was increasingly building up before the thief was rescued had vowed to beat him to death. Kitui Town residents are no nonsense people and make no apologies to anyone caught on the act.
This is why less cases of robbery are reported within Kitui town as opposed to other towns within the county.
