Two “chokoras” who plucked vehicle side mirrors GUNNED DOWN in NairobiCounty News 02:01
Tuesday 9th July 2013 - Two suspected gangsters were yesterday night shot dead at the Central Business District, Nairobi while trying to steal vehicle parts.
The first thug was shot dead at the Globe Cinema Roundabout by undercover police as he was trying to pluck off a side mirror from a vehicle that was stuck in a jam.
The roundabout is well known for mugging as thieves take the opportunity to pluck off vehicle parts taking advantage of the usual snarl up. The second gangster was ambushed at the Old Nation Roundabout after he had also plucked off a side mirror of another car.
While confirming the incident, Nairobi County Police commander, Benson Kibui, said that they had received many complaints from motorists hence came up with the undercover mission.
He added that more police officers have been deployed to other hot spots where motorists usually suffer a similar fate to reduce cases of mugging.
The stolen vehicle parts were recovered at the scene.
