The criminals ride around on Bodabodas with a pillion passenger who is always ready to snatch the phone from the unsuspecting victim on broad daylight.

However, what is more shocking is that this trend has caught on in Eldoret but what the culprits are snatching is even worrying.

According to Kanik Khavetsa, her two weeks old baby was snatched from her by an unknown woman who then got on an idle motorbike and the two sped off.

Kanik Khavetsa said that the motorbike was idling near her at Wareng Bus Stage in Eldoret when the shocking incident took place.

She says that as she was waiting for the bus, the Bodaboda rider even said hello to her but she didn't pay much attention to him since she had no business with him.

Then someone tapped her shoulders from behind and when she turned to look, the baby had been taken from her arms by an unknown woman.

The woman then jumped on the bike and that is how they made away with her baby despite frantic efforts to raise alarm for the two to be stopped.
