BY KORIR JUMA,NAIROBI,16TH SEPT 2019-Two more suspects in connection to the Ksh.72 million heist from a Nairobi ATM have been arrested.

Detectives from the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI) arrested John Kamau Mulei at Muumaandu in Machakos County who later led the  detectives to the house of his 60-year-old grandmother Mary Kyalo at Kalumoni where Ksh.2,389,000 was recovered.

Mr. Mulei is the brother to Bernard Mwendwa who was arrested on Thursday last week for also being part of the gang that orchestrated the heist.

Two weeks ago on Thursday September 5, 2019, criminals posing as police officers on escort robbed G4S personnel of Ksh.72 million in Nairobi West in an incident that did not involve gunshots or left anyone injured.

Sources revealed that the team had collected the cash from G4S headquarters on Witu Road with three men who appeared to be police officers.

A police report from  Lang’ata Police Station said the cash was picked up at around 6am en route to the different bank ATMs.

When they arrived at the Standard Chartered Bank ATM in Nairobi West, the G4S team called their headquarters for the password to reload cash into the machine.

Once it was opened, the thugs immediately turned on them.

Six suspects, including three police officers, have since been arrested and arraigned in court where they were released on Ksh.1 million bond.

Magistrate Francis Andayi declined an application to deny them bail saying the reasons given by the Prosecution were not compelling or satisfactory.
