There was some drama on Twitter on Thursday night, after a woman posted a video seeking help after being trapped inside the washroom of one of Nairobi CBD’s popular fast food outlets.
From the clip, the woman said that she was locked inside Pepino’s Pizza by mistake, when she went to use the ladies room.
The security men outside could hear her, but were not in a position to help since they did not have the keys to the restaurant. The people who could open had already gone home.
Sandra was appealing to anyone in a position to help to come through for her.
Here’s that video.
Please retweet or help me reach out to someone who can help pic.twitter.com/oVXO9cQ7Ao

Pepino’s Pizza, Chicken Hse and Blueberry bakery all share the same premises, located along Kimathi street.
After the video went viral, Sandra found help. The management ensured that someone arrived to let her out, and even the police helped by ensuring she was dropped home.
This was her follow-up tweet at around 1:30 a.m.
UPDATE; Help came through. I was rescued. Thank you to each of you who took the time to retweet or reply to me. It meant so much Special mention goes to @NPSOfficial_KE who came to my rescue, with special mention to Inspector Oyoo, he specifically ensured that I was dropped home.
