On Saturday night, police made an arrest of a well-known mugger who had been positively recognized by many victims.
Police were able to locate Dickson Gatonga Njeri, who had been operating in the Huruma and Kariobangi districts, and they were able to detain him near the Outer Ring Road.
A kitchen knife was found in Dickson after a search, according to a statement from the National Police Service (NPS). Then, while awaiting arraignment, he was transported to a police cell.
The arrest follows a slew of others made by law enforcement officials in an effort to rein in the city's rising crime rates.
In response to reported incidences of insecurity, CS Kindiki stated that the government was aware of the public uproar and was resolved to take quick action to cleanse Nairobi and other towns of criminal gangs.
In the meantime, GSU officers have been stationed in various regions of the country to suppress the gangs.
