Two students will be forced to sit their Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exam in police custody after they were arrested on Wednesday, November 8, for robbing a Nairobi resident of property estimated at KSh330, 000.
According to Nairobi Police Commander, Japheth Koome, the students from Soweto Baptist Secondary School in Kibera, were part of a four-member gang who had been terrorizing Kibera and Kilimani residents.
A civilian, Kevin Mwangi, 26, was arrested alongside the students, as another suspect – a student at Kangemi High School – managed to escape.
Koome says police raided a house that the four had rented in Kibera and found a MacBook laptop worth Ksh.250, 000, a HTC phone valued at Ksh.53, 000, an external hard drive estimated at Ksh.15, 000 and rubber shoes valued at Ksh.1, 500 among other items that they had allegedly robbed from a Kilimani resident at gunpoint last week.
Police are looking for the Kangemi High School student who escaped.
