Catholic Nuns Save Robber From Mob Justice
Two Catholic nuns on Tuesday morning saved a thief from mob justice and imminent lynching.
Photos seen by Kenyans.co.ke show a group of visibly agitated Kenyans descending on the man along Harry Thuku Road near Museum Hill with blood soaking his clothes.
On cornering the man, the crowd forced him to sit down on the pedestrian walk awaiting their final verdict.
In one the photos, a boda boda rider is seen raising a massive brick ready to smash the villain.
However, in an act of bravery, the Catholic nuns witnessing the scene took it upon themselves to intervene and save the man from the glaring death despite being clearly outnumbered.
They were captured physically shielding the man from the mob that was baying for his blood.
After a long tussle, the nuns appeared to have convinced the crowd to let the man "go and never sin again".
One of the most remarkable photos from the scene is that of one of the nuns walking the man away from the crowd hand in hand.
Interestingly, the alleged thief was wearing a crucifix, a prominent symbol of Christianity, a religion the Catholic nuns subscribe to.
This saw netizens make fun of the coincidence of the crucifix during the rescue terming it a "salvation by the cross".
