“If you have family or close friends coming to Nairobi or residing here, please advise them appropriately. These past two weeks have not been easy at work. We are receiving an average of 4 – 7 cases of stabbing daily from muggings around the city. I have helplessly watched young and old, men and women, breathe their last while trying to save them. Some are in Intensive Care Unit while others have survived but with lifelong injuries,” said Ms Munyua.

She went on to reveal some of the places where victims of emergency stabbing cases they receive at the hospital often happen.

“Most of these cases are coming from Drive-In Flyover upto KCA, KCA Underpass and Total exit, Globe roundabout and Kipande Road, ABC Place & Kangemi along Waiyaki Way, Naivas All Sopps along Thika Super Highway and the Central Business District (Archives), River Road and Fig Tree area as well as around KBC Offices etc. Please note these killer thugs are stealing in broad daylight. If you resist, they will stab or shoot you without a second thought,” she said.

“Advice your friends and family to avoid walking alone or getting late in these places. If you’re carrying a laptop in a backpack, you remain a target. Be sure you will lose it or lose your life in these places. You’re on your own. Save your loved ones especially now that the December holidays are approaching and the thugs are becoming bolder by the day. Before government comes to save you, save yourself. Kaa rada (beware),” she went on.
