What would your mother say?

So, Nakuru -- where I lived for a few months in 1989 -- has done a little vigilante action. The mother of one of the boys who was captured, beaten to death and burned by the mob for rape and theft was interviewed by the BBC, and had this to say:
"I have never known my son to be a thief because at no time has he ever stolen from me," said Lucy Nduta.

"But if he was in the company of such robbers, then I cannot defend him."
