List of crime hotspots in Nairobi- police report

The admission by police of the surging crime rates in Nairobi comes days after the outgoing Nairobi Police Commander James Mugera refuted the reports claiming that they were meant to tarnish President William Ruto's new administration.

"There is no spike in crime. What changed is the political leadership. We have a new President, Parliament, and Cabinet but the same service offered by the police. There is no lacuna whatsoever," Mugera stated.

Last year, the police released a report listing areas with high crime rates in Nairobi and advising Nairobians on how to avoid snatchers.
