The manager of the Ethic Entertainment, confirmed that their group member SWAT aka Mtoto wa Eunice, was home then but seriously injured after he was subjected to mob justice on Saturday night.
According to their manager the police were conducting patrols in Umoja and when SWAT – real name Boniface Mwangi – saw them he ran into a residential plot. The residents of the plot who thought SWAT was a thief, they attacked him and others who were with him. SWAT and the other victims were only rescued by the police and set free after it was confirmed that they had not committed any crime.
“Police were doing raids in Umoja, carrying young people who were out and about, so when kina SWAT saw cops coming at them they ran away and entered an unknown plot. So the people in the plot thought they were thieves and started flogging them. Luckily the police intervened after a short while. And he was set free since they were innocent,” Mbugua, their manager said.
Mbugua has further cleared the air on social media that SWAT was caught stealing inside someone’s house. “If he was caught stealing he’d be in a cell right? I don’t know about the stories online but cops were definitely involved and if he’d committed any crime, he’d be in a cell as we speak. SWAT is not a thief! If anything we’d just done some shows on Friday and he was quite loaded,” Mbugua said.
