Kenyans have united in support of a man who was brutally beaten by a shopkeeper in Pipeline, Nairobi, for owing a mere Sh100.

The shocking incident, captured in an undated video circulating on social media, has sparked outrage and calls for justice.

Reports reveal that Boniface Nyaboti, accompanied by his son, fell victim to an unprovoked attack by a shopkeeper while walking along the roadside.


The disturbing video depicts the shopkeeper harassing Nyaboti, with his young son helplessly watching the altercation unfold.

Kenyans from all walks of life, including celebrities, have voiced their solidarity with Boniface Nyaboti, condemning the shopkeeper's violent actions.

Notable personalities like Eric Omondi have taken to social media to raise awareness about the incident and advocate for justice on Nyaboti's behalf.


Eric Omondi shed light on the circumstances that led to Nyaboti's inability to pay the debt, revealing that he had taken rice and cooking oil for his child from the shop.

This insight into Nyaboti's situation has further fueled public outrage, as many question the excessive force used by the shopkeeper over such a trivial amount.

Eric Omondi urged his followers to contribute towards opening a shop for Nyaboti, aiming to empower him to become self-sufficient and independent.

The initiative, aptly named 'Team Sisi Kwa Sisi,' aims to provide Nyaboti with the means to support himself and his family, transforming him from a victim into a shopkeeper.


"Team sisi kwa sisi...this is Boniface nyaboti...he was beaten and chained today because of deni ya shop ya 100 mbele ya mtoto wake. Alichukulia mtoi mafuta na mchele...his number is 0713443506 (name: boniface nyabuti) send as much as you can. Kesho tunamfungulia shop. He will be a shopkeeper from tomorrow," Omondi wrote.
