Nairobi

There is a saying that Nairobi ni shamba la mawe, meaning Nairobi is like a desert, full of stones and barren land and the only way to milk something out of it is to struggle, work hard and be smart.

in the effort of trying to make ends meet in Nairobi, many individuals have made their profession to take that which does not belong to them through stealing.

There are human beings in Nairobi who are ready to kill and injure to take anything valuable from mostly defenseless Nairobians.

There are areas within Nairobi where thugs roam freely and can rob from anyone any time of the day. There are areas where even the police cannot set foot unless they want to commit suicide.

For years, Lucky Summer estate has been perceived as a safe place where people can leave and carry out their businesses.
