Detectives on Wednesday arrested two suspects who are said
to pose as stranded motorists then rob unsuspecting people.
This is after one Twitter user highlighted the issue online,
complete with a photo of the two.
It is said that they had tampered with the vehicle’s
registration number using a black tape to mislead security officers.
The two, Caroline Wanjiku Maina and Keith Chege, both 25,
were arrested along the Southern Bypass towards Kikuyu.
“Detectives swung into action and immediately intercepted
the said vehicle with ALTERED registration number KCW 675E along Southern
bypass towards Kikuyu where two individuals; Caroline Wanjiku Maina and Keith
Njoroge both aged 25yrs were arrested.
