It happened to a girl only in December 2008.
She left home at 7.00am going for tuition. She dropped in town to catch the next matatu that would take her to her destination. As she was walking towards the stage, a man gave her a handout on beauty contest.

She kept reading it while walking towards the stage & dropped it about 3 minutes later, after recalling an email she had read on handouts and gifts associated with conmen.Meanwhile, the guy was trailing her & she began feeling weak, could not catch her breath & eyes were tearing. She boarded the next available matatu & requested the conductor not to let the guy board and she would pay for an extra seat.

The matatu was headed for a different destination & finally came back to the same spot in town & the guy was patiently waiting. She requested a guard at Tusky's to help her board a matatu to Langata which he did. She got home at around 09.30am completely weak, confused, her eyes still tearing. She was rushed to Nairobi hospital and passed out at the parking lot.

She responded well to treatment and recovered at 2.00pm. Please inform young ones at home. Share with your sisters, daughters, nieces, mothers, and female friends. This Incident has been confirmed. A man came over and offered his services as a painter to a female putting petrol in her car and left his card. She said no, but accepted his card out of kindness and got in the car.

The man then got into a car driven by another gentleman. As the lady left the service station, she saw the men following her out of the station at the same time. Almost immediately, she started to feel dizzy and could not catch her breath.

She tried to open the window and realized that the odour was on her hand; the same hand which accepted the card from the gentleman at the service station. She then noticed the men were immediately behind her and she felt she needed to do something at that moment.

She drove into the first driveway and began to honk her horn repeatedly to ask for help. The men drove away but the lady still felt pretty bad for several minutes after she could finally catch her breath. Apparently, there was a substance on the card that could have seriously injured her.This drug is called 'BURUNDANGA' and it is used by people who wish to incapacitate a victim in order to steal from or take advantage of them.

This drug is four times more dangerous than the date rape drug and is transferable on simple cards.So take heed and make sure you don't accept cards at any given time alone or from someone on the streets. This applies to those making house calls and slipping you a card when they offer their services.
