Nairobi, the once glorious “city on the sun” is ailing and slowly crippling under the mercy of muggers who have literally taken over the central business district (CBD).

In the past few days, residents of Nairobi have been going through horror in the hands of daylight muggers, ready to kill to steal.

Walking through the streets of Nairobi is becoming a risky venture where only the fittest can survive.

“It is no longer Nairobi, but Nairobbery,” said one lady whose earlobes were tone apart as muggers made away with her silver-coated earings.

If you are walking within Kenya’s main capital city, here are the top dangerous areas which you should either avoid or be cautious:

i) Kenya National Archives ~ as populated as it might be, the National Archives is a danger zone. Young people in their tens and hundreds have been converging here to steal from unsuspecting Nairobians. What is more shocking is that the young men and women are doing in brought daylight, beating up and injuring their helpless victims before robbing them of anything valuable. If you think the people around this place will help you, you are mistaken. They will wait until the thugs are at a safe distance before descending on you with questions of whether you have been “robbed”.

ii) Afya Centre ~ that green building is a no-go zone. There are young people at that place who will take anything you have including shoes. Woe unto you if you look ” expensive” for you risk going back to your house in your birthday suit.

iii) Machakos Country Bus ~ this is actually the headquarter of muggers. This bus station has almost every mugger in town; from pick-pocketers to those stealing luggage from travelers. In this place, people steal without fear and they will force you into any vehicle they feel like.

iv) Koja ~ avoid Koja especially at that roundabout where matatus are parked. If you have your expensive phone, keep it to yourself while at Koja for you never know who might be watching.

v) River road towards Tea Room ~ along this stretch, you have to walk like a “person with a purpose” for all those people you see along this stretch, 40 percent of them are muggers. Scary. Right?

According to Nairobi Governor Mike Mbuvi Sonko, there are some politicians who are colluding with muggers to steal and terrorize Nairobians. The Governor has since formed an anti-mugging unit which he says will work with police to end the menace within the city.

Meanwhile, as we wait for the anti-mugging unit to swing into action, remember, “usalama unaanza na wewe”.
