Human rights activist Boniface Mwangi was on Friday evening a “hero” after he helped police arrest two wanted persons.
According to Mwangi, the two; Christopher Maina and Mary Wangechi stole his bag while at a popular city restaurant.
He turned, and noticed the two holding his bag pack. It is then that he raised an alarm leading to their arrest.
“I was having coffee when Christopher Maina and Mary Wangechi decided to steal my bag. I turned and found them with my bag. Raised my voice; they were arrested.
They’re at Central Police & guess what? They’re wanted for theft in other restaurants.Lost anything to them? Wako Central,” he wrote on social media.

Petty thieves. Justice shall be served! Also that's a disrespect to the rasta folks, lol. They're known for peace

The thieves picked a wrong target, they didnt know that u have a 'street' instinctive mind cos of ur humble beginnings.. For the sake of hundreds who may have fallen prey to these low lives, plse pursue the case to conclusion, otherwise the guys will be back to it
