With the current widespread of street crime, a shocking video clip has surfaced online of a woman’s bag snatched on the streets of Nairobi. The video was recorded on Saturday depicting the three people gang corner the helpless woman from behind, grab her bag and after few confrontation words, the owner of the bag is seen raising her arms in defeat for the gang to take the bag. The thieves then get lost within the crowd passing through the matatus parked there.
Two men and a woman caught on camera in daylight robbery on Tom Mboya Street
A video has emerged apparently showing three people: one woman and two men snatching a passersby’s bag in daylight street robbery on Tom Mboya Street, Nairobi.
What is more chilling, two men actually pass her, look at the push and pull between the victim and gang and keep walking. Mind you, the victim wasn’t being robbed in an alley; it was at a very open place.
According to Nairobi Wire, a 23year old student at Kenyatta University took the video and shared the video with them. During an exclusive interview they conducted, the videographer mentioned how she has seen the gang a couple of times robbing people blindly at around the same spot: pedestrians and motorists.
Making her identity hidden, the student recounts how for the last two months she has witnessed the gang targeting their victims. From single car occupant to a bank located neat the Kiambu Stage in the CBD. And after a lot of being an onlooker…she decided to take the video hoping something will be done to the culprits.
What is saddening most is there is always a policeman controlling the traffic, but for some reason the police haven’t noticed the gang. Two months later.
