11 suspects ar­rested over theft of lap­tops in Juja

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties -

Eleven suspects are be­ing held in Juja in con­nec­tion with the theft of lap­tops and cam­eras from JKuat stu­dents. Juja po­lice boss Pa­tri­cia Na­sio told the Star in her of­fice yes­ter­day that they are also look­ing for a bro­ker who is suspected of col­lud­ing with stu­dents and bankrolling the thugs to rob stu­dents. She said the bro­ker has gone into hid­ing. Na­sio said there has been an in­crease in vi­o­lent rob­beries and stu­dents are often in­jured. Last month, one was shot. “We held a com­mu­nity polic­ing meet­ing last week be­tween the se­cu­rity of­fi­cers and care­tak­ers of the hos­tels and agreed to work to­gether,” Na­sio said. Stu­dents had ear­lier threat­ened to hold protests. They said the route from the high­way to the hos­tels is not lit and the univer­sity ad­min­is­tra­tion has not re­paired the street lights since they stopped work­ing last year.
