Nairobi - In a shocking incident, armed robbers broke into the Safari- Car offices at Lake Nakuru national park on Sunday evening and allegedly made away with more than KES 6 million.
The mysterious theft has left tongues wagging with some of the wardens who sought anonymity claiming that they suspect it was an inside job.
Lake Nakuru National Park senior Warden Dickson Ritan confirmed the incident but also warned against speculations until investigations are complete.
“The break-in happened on Sunday evening at the park offices and I cannot confirm or deny anything for now because CID officers are conducting the investigations,” Ritan said.
On Monday, CID officers spent the better half of the day at the park where they collected samples at the crime scene.
KWS officers led by Central Rift Assistant Director George Osuri held a closed door meeting after accessing the crime scene but did not divulge information about the incident.
At the cash office , the window was broken as the safe which contained the alleged stolen money believed to have been gate collection fees was found extensively damaged, an indication that force was use to access it.
The park which has been branded as a 'Premium Park' owing to the high number of visitors is always secure under 24 hours surveillance which raises the question of how the robbery was orchestrated.
