The last 2 months have been a been surprising for many. Why? The way the government has started dealing with corruption is something most would never have expected.
The zeal and the vigour with which they are going against those involved in high-level corruption is commendable. But what about those small time thugs? Are they still being dealt with? Yes, they are.
Cops have this past week arrested a gang of 4 men who had been engaged in petty crimes like stealing purses, handbags, laptops, phones and other electronics.
They would do this looting from customers attending conferences in Nairobi at KICC and other high class hotels in the city.
The thieves are smart and tend to blend in, so as to look like participants at this events/conferences. What happens is that during breaks(be it lunch or tea) they will steal what a participant has left on the table.
The suspects have left a trail of destruction ion their wake. From stealing 14 laptops from LUCID COMPUTOR ENGINEERS that is located at Imenti House 1st Floor.
They are also reputed to have stolen form hospitals. What they do is that they normally impersonate hospital staff.
Luckily their crime spree might be coming to an as they were captured by CCTV cameras. The gang will be arraigned in Millimani court today.
This is the second major gang to be apprehended by our police, this past month. Earlier this month, another group of 4 thieves that had been terrorizing residents of Juja was caught. Their story is here.
