There was drama in Ruiru town Thursday noon when a middle-aged woman was paraded in the streets of the suburban setting for stealing Ksh.5, 000 from a Kenya Commercial Bank (KCB) client.
The suspect was caught on closed-circuit television (CCTV) stealing Ksh.5, 000 from a lady’s bag when the client had gone to fill deposit slips a few metres away.
While confirming the incident to eDaily, KCB Ruiru branch operations manager Moses Mwanza said the woman has been arrested and she is being held at Ruiru Police Station.
The suspect was taken round Ruiru town with a placard written: “I am a thief. Mimi ni mwizi.” hung on her neck.
CCTV footage showed the suspect was part of a three-member female gang. The other two managed to escape and authorities are looking for them.
Police have warned members of the public to be vigilant in banking halls, especially now when banks are full with clients who are paying school fees.
