2. Githurai 45
Githuri market place is another dreadful area in Nairobi. You might just be stand or walking on one part of the market, when someone will grab your phone or bag in a flash and dash out. Sadly, nobody will agree that they know the robber since it is a crowded area.
The second trick used in mugging people is by rolling out an iron rod on their back and ordering them to give their phone or else they will be shot. For fear of being shot, victims quickly handover all their valuables without argument.
The case of robbery in this area is so bad that one time when a famous cop who used to kill thugs was prosecuted for murder, residents protested for three days. They simply wanted him to continue killing the thugs.
