One of the managers is heard talking to someone, supposedly his boss, after which he tells the rest of the crew: “He has told us to burn him.”

Another manager is also heard asking: “Where will he get KES 2 million?”

Njoroge, who denied stealing the goods, says he was rescued by his colleagues.

Though he reported the case at Mariakani police station, police are yet to take action against his tormentors.
