Following a police operation, the nine were apprehended in Kasarani’s Kamae and Lineka neighborhoods.
According to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI), the nine committed a series of robberies in five counties over the course of two weeks, all using a similar method.
This prompted a detective investigation, and a contingent of officers was dispatched to apprehend the perpetrators.
Following the raid, Henry Mburugu, Dennis Mwai, Stephen Ngaruiya, Joe Njeru, Kennedy Mawira, Jecinta Wambui, Jackline Nyaguthie Njeri, Purity Wanjiru, and Elizabeth Wanjiku were arrested.
They appeared in Milimani Law Courts on Tuesday to answer charges of robbery with violence.
