EXCLUSIVE: Burglars steal goods worth Sh2m from Mariga’s apartment

Kenyan football star MacDonald Mariga is the latest victim of house burglary in Nairobi.

According to reliable reports, the flashy footballer lost valuables worth close to Sh2 million after burglars raided his apartment in Lavington.

The burglars stole electronics and clothes, including a television set reportedly worth half a million shillings.

Mariga, who is currently attached to Italy’s second tier club US Latina, was not in the house during the theft. He is still away on club duty.

The 29 year old former Inter Milan midfielder only resides in the apartment when on holiday with his partner and daughter. The trio are expected to arrive this week.

Nairobi News understands there was no forceful entry into the Sh16 million apartment during the theft which is suspected to have been an inside job.

Police who have commenced investigations on the incident.

“Looks like someone has a spare key to the house which he used to gain entrance and took the items,” our source said.

The theft occurred almost two years since Mariga’s younger brother, Harambee Stars captain Victor Wanyama, also lost property worth millions of shillings during a raid in his house in England.

Wanyama, who is attached to English club Southampton FC, was also not in the house at the time the incident took place. Police recovered his Sh8 million  Range Rover vehicle that the burglars had made away with.
