Increase Security Measures on Property, Residents Demand Amid Increased Crime in South C

Residents of Nairobi's C South estates have expressed concern over an increase in thefts targeting apartments in the area. Thieves targeted homes where residents were away from work or running errands. Sarah Mukami, who lives in an apartment in South C, reported that her house was broken into and valuables were stolen.

"I quickly left the house to work. When I got home 40 minutes later, thieves broke into my house and took my TV, two laptops, a home theater and a can of gas. It seems that someone is watching my movements. It is very well put together. It wasn't a cent cadence,” he said. He reported the incident to the Akila Police Department on April 30, 2022.

"I am very saddened by the loss of more than 400,000 tenge. "Police have taken fingerprints but have not yet made an arrest," Mukami said.

"I gave up looking for stolen items," he said. Dennis Musyoka lost household items worth Kshs 500,000.

His case is similar to Mukami's. "I went out to dinner with my girlfriend. When I got home, I was surprised to see the door wide open. "There are no TVs, laptops, petrol cans or watches," says Musyoka.

"I was only there for two hours. It was as if someone knew what time I was coming. "None of my neighbors saw anything," he said. Musyoka suspects that the gang is colluding with the guards".

Residents say there have been a number of robberies on the property this year, many of which have gone unreported. Residents are calling for increased security measures on properties, especially during the holiday season when people travel around the country.
