In a short video uploaded on YouTube on Friday, July 23, an unidentified Chinese man is seen cruising along a street of Nairobi CBD. He is riding shotgun while indiscreetly hanging his smartphone along the bustling roads to tempt the phone snatchers.
In his right hand, he holds a taser to immobilise the culprits as they endeavour to grab the phone.
"We are in Nairobi City and we will show you a telephone grabbing scheme," expressed a reporter on the video.
In the first instance, one man tries to snatch the phone from the Chinese but fails. It only took him only a few seconds to go for the phone but failed.
In another instance, a man in a black hoodie and sunglasses tries to snatch the phone but is repelled by the taser gun the Chinese man is holding.
As he continued to cruise around the CBD, many onlookers were attracted to the phone and seemed to want to go after it. Two other people attempt to grab the phone until one person comes over and warns the Chinese man to keep his phone away from the window.
The telephone was a Samsung Galaxy A11 that retails at Ksh14,000 locally. The video just shows how rife phone burglary is in Nairobi City. The Chinese managed to identify 4 potential criminals in just 3 minutes yet the police have failed to arrest a single suspect in months.
