 Four armed thugs robbed Chinese workers close to Sh 8million along the busy NairobiNakuru highway in a mysterious incident.

The thugs who were allegedly dressed as police officers grabbed the loot near Karai trading center in Naivasha before escaping.

The gangsters did not shoot or injure the two Chinese and their driver during the early morning incident.

According to a source, the three were driving to Naivasha town when the incident occurred after collecting the cash from Nairobi.

“The driver claims that a white car overtook them and two men brandishing guns ordered them to stop,” said the source.

Naivasha deputy OCPD Paul Korir said that the cash was meant to pay workers in Geothermal Rich Olkaria area where the construction of the 280mw geothermal power plant is going on.

Korir wondered why the three decided to carry such a huge sum of money without asking for police escort.

“The three claim that they were ambushed by armed thugs along the highway who took the cash before fleeing towards Nairobi” he said.

The police boss added that they were interrogating the driver adding that they did not rule out an inside job.
