A man caused drama in Mombasa on Tuesday, November 29, when he leaped off Cannon Towers to avoid paying debt, reports region-based media station Baraka FM.
According to eyewitnesses, the debtor – a Ugandan – had gone on an errand in Cannon Towers along Moi Avenue, when his creditor bumped into him and threatened to call the police to arrest him over unpaid KSh30, 000.
The suspect escaped and jumped off the building – from the second floor – through an open window.
He, however, fell on a tuk tuk and only sustained minor injuries on his leg.
Baraka FM says the debtor, who works as a clearing and forwarding agent, has a reputation of not settling accrued debts.
