The incident shocked netizens with a good number wondering why there is no security at the premises. Others called on netizens to excise caution while visiting a public place and keep their valuables close.
Notably, Kisumu is currently hosting the 2022 Africities Summit with guests from different parts of the world gracing the event.
” Kisumu is generally a safe and easy city. This hardly happens but with Afri Cities here with us, thieves are coming from all parts of the country. Kindly assist the guests secure their valuables by being alert, this includes utilizing safes or the front office desk at Hotels since most premises have also hired part-time employees,” Tuli Tuli, an MCA aspirant in Kisumu wrote.

If you own a business in Kisumu kwanza within cbd try and beef up your security guys. Especially those who own electronics and phones business, they are now being targeted vibaya. I have learned the hard way, mungu tu.
