In Summary
  • The cash on transit was meant to pay thousands of dairy farmers who were already waiting at the company’s cash office.

  • But like the previous incidents, police believe the crime was stage-managed and are holding the two managers for interrogation.

  • Unlike the past robberies where no one was arraigned in court, Mr Ndolo said this time things will be different.

Armed robbers on Tuesday staged a dramatic robbery targeting Ol Kalou Dairy limited, the fourth robbery this year. 

But unlike in previous incidents where the criminals walked into the strong room taking hours to break the safe and stores, Tuesday's thugs waylaid two company managers who had just withdrawn Sh0.5 million from a bank in Ol Kalou.

The cash on transit was meant to pay thousands of dairy farmers who were already waiting at the company’s cash office.

The two managers claimed that a four member gang armed with guns waylaid them a few meters from the company offices. 

STAGE-MANAGED

But like the previous incidents, police believe the crime was stage-managed and are holding the two managers for interrogation.

Two weeks ago, armed police officers were assigned to guard the premises on a 24-hour basis, but the criminals turned out to be smarter. 

In Tuesday’s incident, Chege Kamau and Peter Gitau ( acting manager and accountant respectively), claimed that robbers blocked their way a short distance from the company officers and shot at the car before escaping with the cash.

The two have been detained by the police to assist with investigations.
