Thika Road Mall (TRM) has been put on the spot after a well known businessman allegedly lost Sh565,000 at the facility’s parking area on Saturday afternoon.

Mr Eric Ndichu took to his social media pages to narrate how he lost the money just moments after he withdrew the cash from the bank.

“It all happened on the mall’s top-floor a few minutes after I withdrew money from KCB bank and hid it in the car. The thugs broke into my car and made away with the money,” he said.


He claims that a CCTV footage captured the thugs who stole the money from his car.

Two of the gangsters allegedly sustain injuries after they smashed the Mr Ndichu’s car window during the break in.


The thugs who are reported to have been in a group of five – four men and one woman – left the mall in a Nissan Tilda.

In a letter by signed by Kasarani DCIO, Douglas Chikanda, seen by Nairobi News, the mall’s security personnel has been asked to produce the CCTV footage that captured the incident.

The mall has also been asked to provide any information which may assist in the investigations.
