He went on to say that a slight change in their arrival time is what saved them from the hired goons.

“The goons had the plans in place. They knew at what time we would arrive and the type of transport we had planned on using,” he said.

In the stated event, a bunch of boisterous youths started pelting his chopper with stones upon arrival for Mzee Kibor’s burial.
