Thieves dressed as nuns steal from real nuns

Two criminals dressed as nuns walked into a hostel at Kimathi University of Technology on Friday night and stole two bags belonging to foreign nuns attending the beatification of Sister Irene Stefani.

The women went to the hostel pretending to be part of a delegation looking for accommodation, but (real) nuns quickly recognised that they were wolves in sheep's clothing.

"Other nuns working in the institution became suspicious and told them off. They then handed them over to security officers who ordered them out," said Nyeri OCPD Charles Rotich.

However, as they walked out, they managed to pick the bags as if they had walked in with them.

"But they were arrested by the police and are still in custody pending further investigations," said Father George Mutahi of Nyeri Diocese.

But the fake nuns were not the only people on unholy mission that night. A car was stolen at Gikondi Catholic Church as pilgrims observed their vigil.
