A woman is being held by police in Nyali, Mombasa County, for being a member of a gang that contaminated drinks belonging to Kisumu County officials.
Leah Mwenja, 31, however, drank the poisoned alcohol without realizing it and passed out.
Mwenja was discovered unconscious with the three men in an apartment they had reserved.
The males were apparently enjoying their beverages at a restaurant when they were approached by the women, who are said to be top officials from Kisumu County’s physical planning department.
The group departed the bar at 3 a.m. with more beers, only to be discovered comatose by their fellow county employees the next morning.
Mwenja was discovered unconscious near them, but her two other companions had left.
Laptops, cell phones, and other items belonging to county authorities were stolen.
Mwenja and the officials were treated and certified safe at the Coast General Hospital.
