Dylan Kerr, the British coach of Kenyan Premier League champions Gor Mahia, fell prey to Nairobi thugs who stole two expensive mobile phones from him last weekend.
Kerr was with friends when he was attacked after leaving a club along Ngong Road, shortly after watching the international boxing match between Kenyan Fatuma Zarika and Mexican Yamileth Marcado.
According the British manager, a group of youth tricked him with a selfie request before attacking him and his friends resulting in one of his party needing to be rushed to hospital with his injuries.
Speaking to The Nairobian, Kerr said: “This is the first time in Kenya that I have been attacked and lost a phone. I don’t deny people selfies even if it is a 1,000 times. I wonder why someone would go into all that trouble for an old Blackberry phone.”
He claimed the security guards at the club refused to assist them, but demanded money to help them get their phones back. However, the club condemned the incident and distanced themselves from any blame saying the attack took place outside the venue.
