A manhunt for armed gangsters who in a shocking incident raided a radio station and robbed presenters live on air has been launched.
At the same time detectives based in Nakuru County are appealing for information regarding armed thugs who stormed a radio station, manhandled staff and made away with cash and other valuables.
In the unfortunate incident recorded live on camera, the thugs who were armed with a firearm and machetes were captured as they made their way into the Mwinjoyo FM recording studio, where they ordered the presenters to lie down before they ransacked their pockets for money and other valuables.
“Zima hiyo kitu! Lala chini,” one of them ordered as two shocked presenters a man and a woman sprung to the floor.
The thugs who had their faces concealed using balaclavas interrupted the live Kigocho broadcast, that featured gospel musician Robert Kiarie.
The gang of four made away with 8 mobile phones, over Sh35,000 in cash and eight pairs of shoes.
Five cameras were also damaged by the thugs before they escaped by jumping over the establishment’s perimeter, located in Nakuru’s Milimani suburbs.
Police said the search for the thugs has been launched and called on members of the public to volunteer any information that may lead to their arrest.
“We are appealing for information from anyone who may recognize thugs dressed in black to volunteer it to us anonymously,” said the police
