An American couple escaped narrowly a machete attack as they drive through a remote area said to be Maai Mahiu in Nakuru County.
Bryant Swenson, his wife Lauren and some other occupants were driving through the road when they spotted a matatu and later spotted three armed men running towards them holding machetes.
“This happened yesterday on our way up to Kijabe with Shiv Simani, [Collins Monde], and [Lauren Swenson]. We came upon 3 bandits robbing a matatu. I had to back up long enough to roll my window up before passing by the guy wielding the panga (machete),” Bryant posted on social media.
The driver opted to reverse the vehicle when the thugs runned towards them but later drived on managing to escape.
“The guy on the far left had a handgun, but couldn’t get it out of his waistbelt in time. They chose this spot for ambush because the road is very rough, but fortunately we were in my 80 series. Also thankful for a manual transmission,” he said.
