Where: Luthuli Avenue, Koinange Street, River Road in Nairobi. This is so shocking and seems unbelievable but it happened twice to the same person.
How it happens: The girl (Who has all characteristics of a prostitute) will single out her prey before launching her attack.
The attack: She will scream at the top of her voice definitely attracting a crowd. She will claim that you slept with her and has refused to pay for her services!
“Si tulikuwa na wewe, Building X, Room XX alafu tulielewana utalipa elfu mbili.” (We were with you in BUilding X, Room XX and we agreed that you will pay $20. She will go on blasting the visitor for ‘pretending’ not to speak Swahili, yet he spoke to her in Swahili. She will insist that it was you even if you had just landed! You will end up paying, anyway.
Other version: A woman(mainly) will scream and attract attention, claiming that you have just stolen her phone. They are so bold that the victims are overwhelmed and are forced to surrender the phones.
Quick tip: If faced with any of the above scenarios, walk ahead calmly or offer to report to the police station with the ‘victim’, they will melt away really quick.
