I had a 9.30am meeting on Saturday Oct 13 2018 at Islander Village.
I call my faithful City Loop cabbie Albert Wangua (video below) to pick me up.
Near the Islander Village, I get a text saying 10am, so I get off at the service station, walk into the Bank South Pacific ATM, withdraw K100, and walk into the fried chicken outlet.
Albert, who is parked outside BSP, suddenly runs in, warning me to take care, as he'd seen some dangerous characters watching my every movement.
As I cross the road, unaware, this gang is following me.
Albert, now with another passenger, speeds towards Hohola, makes a u-turn, and shouts at me to jump on.
He points out the gang following me.
We go drop off the passenger at Boroko and Albert drives me back to Islander Village.
We pass the men who would have robbed me, perhaps killed me, waiting for another unsuspecting prey.
Albert, a committed Christian, says this is Divine Intervention.
That's a snapshot of living in Apec City.
Times are hard.
People are desperate.
Apec City is a very dangerous place to live and work in.
PS: Albert is the hero and a credit to City Loop. It pays to have a trusted cabbie, who in my case, may have saved my life.
