Mercy Kyallo, the CEO of Yallo Leather and a prominent reality star, recently opened up about a harrowing experience she had with the DCI, shedding light on an incident she had kept private until now.

In a conversation with Phil Director on February 4, Mercy recounted the chilling encounter with the CID, describing it as one of the most memorable moments of her life.

She revealed that she had once been apprehended by the Flying Squad, an elite unit within the DCI, an experience that remains etched in her memory to this day.

"Nimewahi shikwa na flying squad. Maybe it is the reason I'm here, I survived. The crazy thing is someone sent me money and they were at large. They were being looked for and wanted," she said

Mercy disclosed that she had unwittingly become entangled in a situation involving the Flying Squad after someone sent her money for what she described as a "super innocent" purpose.

Usiwahi taka kuingia kwa hizo investigations. I didn't know anything but nilitoka hapo kama nimepeana all the information. it's a strange story for me," she said.
