Law enforcement suspects that the armed gangs, operating in groups of three or four, are active between Capital Centre and General Motors (GM), often employing motorcycles for their quick getaways.

The resurgence of motorcycle gangs is a growing concern not only in the city’s slums but also in upscale neighborhoods like Kileleshwa, Karen, and Kilimani.

These gangs, utilizing motorcycles, typically engage in theft of valuables and snatch mobile phones from unsuspecting locals.

Just last month, a businessman named Adan Ali Mohamed fell victim to a similar incident when two individuals on a motorcycle shot and injured him in Eastleigh, Nairobi, stealing a total of Sh3.9 million from him.
