21-year-old Mercy Cherono is nursing injuries at the Olenguruone Hospital in Kuresoi South after she was tied to a motorbike and dragged on a dirt-road by people alleged to be security officers.

In a now viral video, Ms Cherono could be heard pleading for her life as she was dragged across the dirt by a moving motorbike.

Hot at her wake was an unidentified man who rained blows on her exposed back with a horse whip. He was also wielding a Masai rungu.

The video caused uproar on social media with scores of Kenyans demanding justice for the woman.

Citizen Digital understand that 7 suspects who were arrested in Molo in connection with the atrocity are yet to be arraigned in court.

In the Saturday incident, Ms Cherono is said to have been part of a three-person gang that broke into a David Kiprotich’s house when he was away.

Kiprotich is the deputy OCS at Olenguruone police station.

According to reports, the gang made away with Ksh.10,000, police uniform, a TV set and a sub-woofer.

Ms Cherono who is believed to have been part of the gang was unable to flee during the incident and locked herself in the bathroom.

She was found huddled in the bathroom and dragged outside by security officers where they proceeded to beat her up before tying her to the bike.

After the incident, she was taken to hospital where she has been nursing injuries to the head, chest and feet.
