The Deputy President William Ruto was in Kayole Estate yesterday for a church function and it just went the way it always goes.
Muggers and pickpockets reigned terror on the crowd that assembled to greet the DP after the sermon at House of Hope Church.
Some residents later told Umoja News that they lost phones, watches, bangles, wallets and necklaces.
While DP Ruto was measuring his popularity through cheering crowds, the homeground of Gaza Gang preyed on innocent women and no so innocent men to commit petty crimes.
‘A gold necklace was snatched from me’, said a lady
Others were not so lucky to know what happened, they just found themselves separated from their phones.

Here is how it happens in such crowds, a group of 6 to 10 thugs would congregate around a target, snatch a valuable be it a phone, watch or necklace and you can do nothing about it. For the valuable will do a chain chain from one person to the next untill you can’t identify who has it. If you point to the one who took it, a search wouldn’t yield anything. You get.
‘A phone was snatched while I was recording the video and taking pictures, when I looked back to who might have taken it, everyone was looking at me like a statue’, said another lady
Sometimes you are asked nicely to hand your valuables over and shown a weapon, you can scream for that’ll be tantamount to accussing them falsely.
As the hustler was on a dick measuring contest, fellow hustlers who are jobless and being lied to by him that he is the messiah were roughing up the crowd in a way they know best, exemplified by the chief thief.
