Three armed men pounced on Joy Makena as she was driving in her Subaru Leone Reg. No. I(BX in traffic along Uhuru Highway on 14/7/17 at 4p.m.
It happened very fast, and Joy found herself thrown on the road pavement, injuring her left collarbone. She could only recall that two of the men spotted dreadlocks and were both lightskinned, tad and mean looking. Patel was driving behind her and witnessed the carjacking as it unfolded right in front of his eyes. The men had guns and traffic immediately began to flow again.
He parked his vehicie and picked up the shaken Makena and took her to the nearby Central Police Station. Apparently, other motorists had alerted the police and shortly after, while still at the Central Police Station, Flying Squad Officers arrived with a bullet riddled Subaru, one dead dreadlocked light-skinned tall man and another dreadtocked, tight-skinned medium height man in handcuffs. They also had with them two firearms, an AK 47 assault rifte and Ceska Pistol they said they recovered from the two men. One is said to have escaped and suspected to be wounded.
