Nairobi police hunt suspected thieves led by granny
Police in Nairobi are investigating several theft incidents involving five gangsters, led by an elderly woman believed to be in her eighties.
Police say the gang members include two men and three women, all of Asian origin.
They target electronic goods and M-Pesa shops in Nairobi and neighbouring towns. The gang has been captured on several CCTV footages. Langata OCPD Elija Maina on Tuesday said they were investigating a case in which the same gang stole money from an M-Pesa shop in Dam 2 Estate in Langata last Saturday.
The elderly woman and her accomplice went to the shop and pretended that they wanted to withdraw Sh70,000 from M-Pesa.
