Why MPESA Shop Attendant in Kasarani Has Been Arrested in Connection to Rongai Robbery

Yesterday morning, Kenyans work up to the shocking news that a woman had been robbed by five gang members in Rongai as she came home at about 2AM.

In the shocking CCTV footage from a house in a gated community in Manchester Close in Kanidisi, Rongai Town in Kajiado County, the woman was taken out of her car by force and taken in her house.

The five gang members are said to have made away with household valuables like a music system as well as her handbag, mobile phone, and other valuables and demanded her PINs.

According to reliable reports from Daily Nation Newspaper this morning, one suspect has been arrested and is helping police with investigations into the incident.

The suspect was arrested after he withdrew 240,000 shillings from the woman’s accounts at an MPESA Shop in Mwiki, Kasarani Constituency in Nairobi County.

The reports also suggest that the MPESA Shop attendant has been arrested by the authorities this morning.

The MPESA agent was arrested after he is said to have allowed the suspect to conduct the transaction at his shop.

It’s unclear as to what the MPESA agent will be charged for in a court of law as he did not participate in the robbery.
