Mathare residents raise concern on crime in the area


Mathare residents have raised concern about the rise of crime in the area.

Speaking to Ghetto Radio, some of the residents said there are so many gangs in the area who rob them even in broad daylight.

The residents also reported that a large number of the robbers are young boys.

“There are so many thieves in the area, sometimes you see someone being robbed in broad daylight but there’s nothing you can do. The security is not really good.” Said Joseph a resident in the area

The residents also said that despite the rampant crime in the area, they do not call for extra judicial killings but would like other measures to be used instead.
