The residents of the estates along this busy highway are calling on the police to intervene and stop this menace which threatens to boil over if not addressed in due course.
A motorist that plies that route reports of a robbery that happened in which passengers were hijacked in a matatu on the busy road.
The matatu is one of those highly decorated vehicles that many refer to as "Nganya" that ply the busy route between Rongai and Nairobi Central Business District.
It's reported that a gang of about six heavily armed men boarded one of the matatus and proceeded to rob people at gunpoint.
With nothing much to do but corporate, the occupants of the vehicle, women and children notwithstanding, were robbed of their valuables.
The eye witness account details how the men then vanished without a trace on the busy highway after robbing the people.
Police are called upon to be more vigilant and ensure that such culprits are brought to book as it's not safe anymore on the road.
