The National Police Service (NPD) has finally released the list of crime hotspot areas in Nairobi county following the increase in criminal activities within the city.
Reportedly, the following areas include, some parts of the Central Business District towards Kangemi, Fig Tree, ABC Place, Kirinyaga Road, Archives and River Road.
Other areas include the Globe Cinema, the Drive-In flyover, the underpass at the Kenya College of Accountancy towards the Total Petrol station exit, Kipande Road and Thika highway.
This comes in days after the former Nairobi police commander James Mugera refuted claims that there was an increase in criminal activities in Nairobi.
It's reported that in the above areas numerous complaints of victims being mugged in both daylight and night, or killed have been reported to various police stations.
Furthermore, the police have requested Kenyans to be watchful while carrying out their daily activities within Nairobi.
Kenyans have also been advised not to fight with armed criminals but to cooperate with them to avoid getting injured or killed.
The police have since provided an emergency phone number 0203556771, for assistance in case of an emergency.
