Thugs carjack Ruto's Communication Secretary

19 March 2014, 09:29

Nairobi - Deputy President’s Communications Secretary David Mugonyi was on Tuesday night carjacked and robbed of KES 20,000, mobile phones and other personal belongings in Nairobi’s Kilimani area.

According to Nairobi County police boss Benson Kibue, Mugonyi was carjacked at his gate by four men who were armed with pistols, Daily Nation reports.

The thugs took control of his car and drove with him towards the city centre before abandoning him in Mlolongo.

 He sustained minor injuries on the face.

Last week, a relative of President Uhuru Kenyatta was also carjacked in Nairobi as cases of insecurity in the capital continue to spiral out of control.

Mrs Njeri Muhoho, the president's aunt and wife to former Kenya Airports Authority chair George Muhoho was carjacked by three unknown assailants along Nairobi's Uhuru Highway.

She was in the company of her driver who was waylaid by the three who took over the vehicle and eventually dropped them near Gigiri close to an hour and a half later.

The two were unharmed in the incident.

Added to the numerous cases of carjacking, kidnappings and assault cases, one wonders what to make of the current security situation.
