Many of the Nairobian streets are nowadays becoming insecure with a high rate of crime increasing in the city.
A facebook user by the name James Mwangi through a renown facebook group known as Nairobi Crime Free has given out his experience on what was done to him while he was walking towards pangani footbridge from premier academy at 6pm in the evening.
James said that he was on the left side of prof. Wangari Maathai road and before he could reach the stage, a guy jumped out of the cemetery bordering city park and pointed a long sharp and shiny knife towards his stomach ordering him to give out his phone and money.(Pangani footbridge.

James had to give in because he did not want to die just because of a phone. The guy then jumped back to the cemetery and dissapeared inside city park. He reported the case to Pangani police station and he is currently warning people from walking alone in the area since the same thing might happen to them.
The best solution therefore is walking in groups of people or using a taxi because it is very difficult for a thug to rob a large group of people.(Source screenshot)
