Police officers in Bamburi, Mombasa County are currently searching for two armed thugs who stormed an M-Pesa shop in the region on Sunday afternoon, and made off with an undisclosed amount of cash and other valuables.
From video evidence posted by Citizen TV, two middle-aged men approached the shop. One was carrying a red bag which had a rifle while the other distracted the owner of the shop. In a matter of seconds, the rifle was removed from the bag to scare the lady who was in the shop.
The two thugs questioned her where the money was and took it. They also warned her not to scream and ordered her to lay down.
Police officers in the country are working tirelessly to combat such crimes and ensure that Kenyans are safe. However, M-Pesa shops are often a target by criminals since they provide crucial mobile money transfer services.
Hence, M-Pesa shop owners should be cautious and install appropriate security measures to avoid such occurrences. For example installing CCTV cameras and hiring a trained security guard.
The officers in Bamburi have launched investigations following the daylight robbery incident. This incident serves a reminder to business owners to always stay vigilant and apply security measures to protect their businesses.
Such incidents are sad but the police will surely do their best to deliver justice to the victim.
