Tuesday, April 02, 2019 - Popular KTN presenter, Lofty Matambo, has narrated his harrowing experience at the hands of armed robbers in Nairobi’s Kayole Estate.

Matambo narrated how he was robbed twice at gunpoint when he relocated to Nairobi from Mombasa to further his career.

Speaking to a local magazine, Matambo said:

“Moving to Nairobi was not easy as I had heard very negative stories about the city, especially on robberies.

“After relocating to Nairobi, I used to stay in Kayole and was twice robbed at gunpoint.

“The first incident happened on a Sunday as I was leaving a friend’s house. After leaving church on that day, I went to his house and stayed till around 9: 30pm when I decided to head home.”

However, he was accosted by armed thugs who took the all the cash he had.

“They caught me and threw me onto the ground before pointing a gun at my head. They made away with Sh500 but left my briefcase which only had a Bible.” he said

He added:

“The second robbery happened as we came from watching a football match with friends. Four very young boys armed with guns suddenly appeared cocked their guns before ordering everyone to the ground.

“I could feel the cold barrel of the gun pressed against my temple.

“Being the second time getting robbed at gunpoint, I was not as scared. They took our phones and left but gave us back the sim cards.”

Kayole is one of the neighborhoods in Nairobi notorious for high crime rates where boys as young as 12 years are known to own guns.
