Narrating the ordeal, Etale divulged he had finished a meal at popular joint, Ranalo, when he was attacked by unknown individuals near Nation centre.

“I parked my car outside I&M building. So I parted ways with Kevin and Mugo who reside along Thika Road and started walking towards my car with Phelix who was slightly ahead of me as I had to stop outside Nation Centre to greet someone who only told me "Etale I am from Karatina and I love what you do.

“I started walking towards CFC Stanbic bank slowly so that I could catch-up with Phelix who had already crossed the road. While in the middle of the road, a small saloon car drove by and I stopped to let it pass.

"I didn't see the number of occupants. All of a sudden, just in a split of a second, some pulled out, sprayed some strong substance on my face and directed into my eyes and the car sped off towards Total gas station on Kimathi Street. The substance got me confused and had me start shouting for help. Luckily, Phelix had me scream and came back,” part of a facbeook post by Etale read.

Etale disclosed that his friend Phelix came and rushed him to hospital where he was treated. He is currently recuperating after the painful ordeal.
