I was almost stripped by matatu touts: Ciku Muiruri’s ordeal
Former radio presenter Ciku Muiruri has narrated how she was nearly stripped by matatu touts.
Speaking to Kalekye Mumo on Talk Central, Ciku revealed that a group of men wanted to undress her for wearing a mini skirt.
“It was way back in the day at the Thika bus stage. You know these ‘mathree’ guys… I did not have dreadlocks at the time.
“I was wearing this skirt whose length was above the knee, and they (mathree crew members) just started following me and the crowd kept getting bigger and bigger.
“They were definitely going to take my clothes off had this woman not stopped to help,” Ciku narrated.
“I was scared, but I understood mob mentality at the time; people minding their own business until they see there is a guy brave enough to follow you, and then the other one joins, and the other one joins, and the other one joins.
“People just need someone to lead them into wrong or into right. That is why I feel that I am very optimistic about our country. All in all, what happened to me can happen,” she said.
