Video: Beloved singer SWAT beaten like a burukenge for allegedly trying to rob an apartment in Umoja

SWAT aka Mtoto wa Eunice during the weekend cheated death after a mob in Umoja almost lynched him for allegedly stealing.

A video of the young kid being beaten by a mob has been doing rounds on social media during the weekends claiming that he had stolen the phones from the apartment in Umoja.

According to his group Ethic, they released a statement saying Swat was with some friends outside a flat on Saturday night when it emerged there were police officers patrolling the area.

“They started flogging them and beating them up, at one point they nearly burnt them. Luckily the same police officers who saw Swat and his friend run away as they were getting away from them came to their rescue and released Swat and the friend since they were obviously innocent,” ethic, through their official Twitter explained. 

Not a thief

Ethic’s manager backed the group’s statement saying that SWAT – real name Boniface Mwangi – saw the police and he ran into a residential plot. He also denied that Swat is a thug in the area.

“If he was caught stealing he’d be in a cell right? I don’t know about the stories online but cops were definitely involved and if he’d committed any crime, he’d be in a cell as we speak. SWAT is not a thief! If anything we’d just done some shows on Friday and he was quite loaded,” John Mbugua said.
