OCS Cries Out After Daring Gang Steal His Car Within A Twinkling Of An Eye

Still reeling from the jolt of discovering that his car had been stolen mere minutes before he was due to go to work a few hours ago, John Magondu, officer commanding station at the Silibwet Police Station in Bomet, is struggling to get back to work.

TV47 reported that the head of the police station in Silimbwet expressed disbelief at the news, given that auto theft was a common occurrence there as recently as 2018, when it was only stopped when the community apprehended a group of infamous thieves.

Although the distressed Officer admitted that he had reported the occurrence, he pleaded with the government to strengthen security in the region, which had experienced a rise in criminal activity.

Following this occurrence, locals are worried that a car theft group has resurfaced after a three-year hiatus.

"It is highly noteworthy that the crooks targeted a senior police officer and stole his vehicle at a parking yard close to the county governor's office, county commissioner's office, police headquarters, and Administration police camp," noted Kipkemoi Barsumei, a former mayor of Bomet.

As a result, IGP Hon Japeth Koome has declared today that the police will not allow any illegal activity, adding that they have given themselves three days to apprehend the Car Thieves.
