On Tuesday 23, the police fighting crime around CBD shot 3 muggers believed to be terrorizing many in town.
This came shortly after people on social media alerted each other on what was happening. With the news spreading like wild fire, an anti-mugging squad was formed following an outcry by the public.
Most victims who suffered in the hands of the muggers confessed that these young men robbed them in broad daylight.
Activist Boniface Mwangi’s post
However, activist and former Starehe MP Aspirant Boniface Mwangi says these young men have turned into crime due to lack of jobs. He goes on to point fingers at politicians for embezzling funds set aside for the youths.
Muggers are being shot in Nairobi Central Business District. 3 shot dead today alone. So Kenya Police knew who the muggers were all along and they never arrested & charged them? Police are shooting muggers while protecting those looting #Kenya and making jobless Kenyans turn to crime. Snatchers get shot. Steal NYS money that is supposed to benefit those youth, we elect you as a governor to continue stealing. Grab school playgrounds and we start saying you will make a good president. Kenyans love big thieves! Small thieves are shot or lynched by the public.

According to him the big thieves (politicians) should be targeted in order to help reduce petty thefts in CBD. But with all this; Kenyans have come out to call him out for defending these young men terrorizing hustlers in town.
Here are the comments left by Kenyans on the post.
