Car theft on the rise
The 2017 Economic Survey shows that motor vehicle theft has been on the rise by 22 per cent. The data indicates that 1,355 vehicles were reported stolen in 2017 compared to the 1,111 the year before.
A recent report by the Association of Kenya Insurers (AKI) indicates that vehicles whose value is below Sh1 million are the most likely to be stolen. The report also points out that, out of the 406 cars reported stolen to insurers, 71 per cent were of the Toyota brand while 51 per cent were white in colour.
Just the other day (June 4th) Kenyan Police recovered a stolen car belonging to Uganda President Yoweri Museveni’s aide and handed it back to him.
The car was found in Gilgil in the Rift Valley region of Kenya, bearing South Sudanese registration numbers.
