Increased number of armed female robbers raising brows

25 February 2015, 10:33 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Rift valley traffic commandant, Mary Omari has cautioned public transport drivers against picking up female passengers at undesignated stages along the Nakuru - Nairobi highway especially during the night.

Her caution came following increased cases of female passengers turning into armed robbers along the busy highway and stripping passengers of their valuables.

Addressing the press Tuesday evening in Nakuru town, Omari said that such cases of women passengers turning out to be robbers have been on the increase in the past one month, urging drivers to only pick up passengers at designated stages.

“Armed robbers have devised a new scheme of carjacking vehicles where female robbers pose as passengers along the road only to end up being robbers and these cases are more common at night," she said.

She added: “Drivers should stop being too easy and attracted to female passengers along the road especially at night because most of the beautiful women who pose as passengers at night can be dangerous people and drivers should be extra careful.”

Omari said highway traffic police officers will intensify patrols at night especially along the notorious carjacking hotspots singling out areas like Gilgil, Naivasha, Mau summit and Burnt forest.
