On Thursday night, NTV aired a story on petty thieves at the Kariokor roundabout, who snatch phones and other valuables from matatu passengers. 
This has been the norm around this area and others, most notably Githurai.

A gang waits on one of the public seats provided, until some traffic jam develops. One of them then scouts for potential victims, and it does not matter whether the window is closed. He opens it, snatches your phone then runs to the others for protection.

Watch that video below.
