Matundura and his gang raided the home of one farmer, Mr James Wamugunda, and that was where Matundura fell in love with their househelp.
He went on to exchange phone numbers with her before leaving.
Their conversations led to the girl agreeing to meet Matundura at the Choices hotel in Mchanganyiko trading centre within Bahati under the instruction of police officers which led to his arrest and that of other members of the gang.
They were charged with six counts relating to robbery with violence, handling of stolen goods, gang rape and possession of firearms and ammunition.
