A man whose vehicle had broken down forcing him to leave it by the roadside as he went in search of a mechanic, was shocked to find it missing, minutes later.

Stephen Kamau, was heading to Murang’a from Maragua town early this morning at around 2am, when his motor vehicle stalled in the middle of the road.

“He parked it by the roadside and decided to keep vigil inside the vehicle a silver toyota hiace, as he waited for early morning mechanics to open their doors for business,” the police said in a statement on Monday evening.

At around 5am, he alighted from the vehicle and walked towards Mukuyu where he hoped to find a mechanic. However, along the way he discovered that he had left his type c phone charger inside the vehicle and decided to go back and get it.

Kamau was shocked beyond words, to find his earlier broken down vehicle missing. How it disappeared from where he had left it 30 minutes earlier, baffled him.
