Police in Nairobi have asked members of the public to volunteer information that may lead to the arrest of two thugs and boda boda riders captured on camera robbing a motorist in broad daylight.

In the video clip which has been widely shared online, the two robbers are seen casually approaching a vehicle parked by the roadside next to a busy highway.

Within seconds, two men draw their guns but with the occupants seemingly reluctant to open the doors, one of the thugs starting smashing the driver’s window, while his gun toting accomplice struggles to open the passenger door.

The driver then jumps out and attempts to wade off one of the thugs who knocks him down with a blow to the head.


Meanwhile, his accomplice manages to snatch something from the passenger.

All this happens within seconds as other motorists drive by oblivious of what is happening.

After they have accomplished their mission, the thugs board two boda bodas which are cycling around as the drama unfolds.

It is after they are long gone that members of the public start milling around the vehicle to investigate what has just happened.
