Jumwa’s daughter slightly injured as armed robbers raid city home, steal Sh1.1 million
Armed robbers yesterday morning raided the residence of Public Service and Gender Cabinet Secretary Aisha Jumwa and stole valuables and cash worth millions of shillings.
The gang of three got into the house through the back door after they cut the perimeter wall of the compound.
The attackers who spent almost four hours in the house, terrorised family members demanding cash and electronics.
During the 1.45am incident, the gang stole Sh1.1 million in cash, three mobile phones, and gold jewellery whose value is yet to be established. The CS was not at home during the incident.
Her two daughters, Selina Sidi and Ruth Kadzo, and house help were present
Kadzo was slightly injured on the right knee.
Police said the gang went direct to the master bedroom upstairs, ransacked and got the cash and the other valuables.
“Officers visited the scene and established that the gang gained access by cutting the electric fence before getting in through the back door which had not been locked. The suspects ransacked the house where her two daughters were sleeping and made away with cash, Sh1.1 million, two gold medals, two laptops, and three mobile phones,” the police said in a statement.
The security guards who were on duty were missing and police believe they could be part of the gang. One of the officers leading the operation said the CS had not informed them that she had acquired the house.
“The CS had not informed the police in Gigiri or Nairobi area that she had moved there after acquiring the house. That explains why there were no armed police manning the place,” an officer leading the operation stated.
Nairobi Regional Police boss Adamson Bungei said the gang knew what they wanted and they could have been well formed that there were no officers at the place.
On January 29, Prime Cabinet Secretary Musalia Mudavadi’s Karen residence was also raided and a television and a gas cylinder were stolen
