DCI arrest two suspected gang members involved in Kajiado home robbery

Two suspects who invaded a holding room where a newly wedded couple was staying before embarking on their honeymoon in Kiserian, Kajiado County have been arrested.

According to DCI, John Mwangi alias Mankufa and James Mwandiki are believed to have orchestrated the Monday night robbery where they stole gifts, household items and electronics while in a gang of five to eight men.

“Armed with all manner of crude weapons, the malefactors forced entry into the apartment located at Olooseos area of Kiserian, by scaling the wall of the apartment and cutting a window grill,” DCI states on X.

Meanwhile, to protect his bride and their host from the gang, the DCI say that the man of the house made attempts to repulse the thugs, only to suffer several injuries.

The gang during the commotion are believed to have made away with two TV sets (50″ & 48″), a microwave, a 13kg gas cylinder, a UPS inverter, three smartphones, and duvets among other wedding gifts.

On receiving the report, Nairobi region crime researchers teamed up with law enforcers from Kajiado West in a manhunt for the felons.

Following crucial intelligence leads, the team hunted down two identified disciples of the gang, fishing them up within Kiserian Township.

John and James were briefly interrogated, thereafter leading the sleuths to their hideout at Olooseos where some of the robbed items, including others believed to have been stolen in previous burglaries were recovered.

The two youthful thugs have since gained admission at a police lock-up facility as detectives heighten their pursuit of their partners in crime.
