Reports coming out of Kenya suggest that a suspected thief climbed a street light pole to save his life after a mob nearly descended on him.
It was gathered that the incident occurred in Meru County, where the robber climbed to the top of a street light to escape beating.
An eyewitness known on Twitter as @KIFARUreloaded claims the thief stayed on the pole for two days as a crowd gathered and waited for him to come down.
He shared a photo showing the man lying comfortable while surrounded by a group of people patiently waiting.
