Nakuru - Police in Nakuru are looking for two women who allegedly stabbed and injured a truck driver at Salgaa before making away with KES 200 000 from his truck on Sunday night.
Rongai police boss, Joseph Mwamburi confirmed the incident Monday morning saying that the driver, identified as Abdul Mohammed Ibrahim, had allegedly picked the two women at Naivasha on his way to Kampala before they agreed to spend the night at Salgaa.
He said the three went to a club at Salgaa trading center before going back to the truck when the two women attacked him with a knife and made off with his wallet which had KES 200 000 according to the driver.
“They had an agreement to spend the night at Salgaa but it seems the women had a hidden motive and after he got drunk, they attacked him and stole his money. We suspect they are these kinds of women who engage in commercial sex work along the Nairobi-Nakuru-Eldoret highway and we are hunting for them,” said Mwamburi.

Mwamburi however said it will be hard to nab the women because the driver has no clue regarding their identity.
“They are people whom the driver had just met for the first time and he doesn’t have any information about them,” he said.
The driver, who was admitted at the Rongai sub-county hospital before being transferred to the Nakuru Provincial General Hospital said it was normal for them to pick women along the highway but he had never had of such incidences.
“I have never heard of any such attack for the 20 years I have been on the road and I couldn’t suspect they had a bad motive but I have learned a lesson," said the driver.
Mwamburi cautioned truck drivers against picking women anyhow along the road without taking precaution.
