Content creator Chebet Ronoh recounted in a TikTok video her arrest for attempting to defend a friend who had been handcuffed in Nairobi CBD.
Chebet Ronoh shares nasty experience in police cells for 11 hours
Ronoh says she spent 11 hours behind bars
According to Ronoh, she endured spending a grueling 11 hours sleeping on the floor while she was incarcerated, an experience she found highly displeasing.
She added that it was cold in there and that only God knows what she went through.
She continued that it is very easy to be arrested in Nairobi as she explained that you could be at the right place but at the wrong time.
"If you ever thought in this country you can have a conversation with a police then you are insane!" Ronoh said.
She said that police officers placed handcuffs on her friend, and she protested to find out why her friend had been handcuffed.
Only then did she realize that there was a truck behind them, and they were being taken to the police station.
Ronoh said that everything initially seemed amusing until the atmosphere shifted while she was detained, wearing only a t-shirt, trousers, and one shoe.
She added that they were the only two people in one room and they couldn't bear the smell emanating from the nearby toilet.
Ronoh said that they began bidding to secure their release, and she couldn't contain her joy when they were finally set free.
