A middle-aged on Wednesday found himself on the wrong side after he was nabbed stealing female undergarments in Chepterit, Nandi County.
In a video currently circulating on social media, the man is seen pleading with the mob to spare his life.
The angry residents, majority of whom were women, claimed their panties had been going missing of late.
One of the angry men in the mob asked him to explain his intention for stealing the undergarments but he found it hard to explain.
After intense pressure from the mob which threatened to set him on fire, the man eventually revealed that he had no bad intentions.
The man admitted he has only stolen the panties in three past occasions and that he does not practise any witchcraft.
Despite not giving a clear explanation of his intentions, the agitated youth still spared him after he promised to be a good man and never to steal people’s belongings ever again.
