POLICE say the suspect, Stephen Wambua Muteti, is a ruthless highway robber who has been targeted motorists for long along Mombasa Rd.
He is now facing 3 charges at the Milimani law Courts after police uncovered his tracks , including a violent robbery in which a foreigner lost Ksh1.9 million in the city’s Industrial area.
Police announced his arrest on August 5 2018 alluding to a major breakthrough in combating highway robberies along the busy Mombasa Rd which had noted an increase in carjackings in the past 18 months.
Muteti’s gang at the time of his arrest are still on the run, police say.
The gang, which included both men and women, would break up into groups of two to four and randomly target motorists, according to the police.
“We estimate that a dozen motorists have been victimized by having their cars broken into just here in Industrial area and others have been attacked along the highway,” justicenow.co.ke was told on condition of anonymity.
Muteti is charged with robbing WANG YUAN of Ksh1,900,000 on January 18 2017 along Likoni Rd in Industrial area , Nairobi, jointly with others not in court while armed with pistols.
He is also charged with being found in possession of an imitation firearm at AA VILLA in Embakasi on January 29 2017.
The suspect faces a further charge of being found in possession of two live bullets at AA VILLA in Embakasi on January 29 2017.
Muteti’s release on bond has been opposed on grounds that he jumped bail in a separate case of robbery with violence.
