Government Issues Ksh 100K Bounty for Notorious Nairobi Gang

The Kenya Urban Roads Authority (KURA) will pay you Ksh100,000 for assisting the government apprehend members of a crime syndicate, believed to have stolen street light poles worth Ksh5 million in the last three months alone.

The daring group of criminals has, additionally, vandalised guardrails and road signs along major highways such as the Thika Supehighway, Outering Road, Ngong Road, and Langata Road.

The cartel, which has turned into a nightmare for the Authority, is suspected to carry out the theft and vandalism for financial gains in the lucrative scrap metal business.

In a statement, KURA announced that three suspects had been arrested after being caught in the act, further asserting that the criminals dragging the country’s efforts to promote road safety down must be brought to book.

Simon Warui, Peter Njeri, and Jamleck Muihi were arrested over the weekend while vandalising Outering Road rail guards, and will be arraigned on Monday at the Makadara Law Courts.

“It is indeed an economic sabotage to destroy public property intended to promote public safety,” KURA stated.

The Authority further noted that repair of damages caused by road vandals was becoming an expensive affair for the State.

“We wish to condemn this unscrupulous and barbaric behaviour which not only endagers the lives of road users but also renders the maintenance of roads expensive,” KURA added.

Anyone wishing to bag the cash should relay meaningful information to the Authority via 020-2700000 or 0717105233.

Persons with leads can also write to KURA via email at or report to the nearest police station.
