Insecurity and terror gangs in Nairobi
Criminal gangs operating on foot or on motorbikes have been terrorizing city residents in a new wave of crime.
A new report titled Criminal Activity Trends released earlier this week noted that there has been a steady rise in armed and opportunist robberies in residential and commercial areas across Nairobi.
The report read in part that “The incidents mainly target pedestrians, traders and motorists, and increasingly feature the use of motorcycles and bodaboda taxis”.
