Sunday, March 3, 2019- Ethic Entertainment member SWAT is nursing serious injuries after he was subjected to mob justice on Saturday night in Umoja.
Swat alias Mtoto wa Eunice, was clobbered by an angry mob who thought he was thief after he ran into a random residential plot to avoid police who were conducting patrols in the area.
From the viral video doing rounds on social media, Swat is seen writhing in pain as an angry mob rains kicks and blows on him.
He was rescued by police and set free after it was established he was not into some mischief.
The group’s manager, John Mbugua, has now set the record straight and stated that SWAT is not a criminal.
Taking to twitter Mbugua wrote: “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,”
He added: “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,”
