For quite some time, car robberies have been on the rise around the country. Robbers employ a variety of strategies to steal automobiles from unwitting victims. Some have been detained, and it is unclear whether or not others will be able to escape the police net.
Mary, a former vehicle thief, now regrets her actions after being introduced to auto theft by her friend group. According to Mary, who spoke in an interview with inooro Tv from the Langata women's prison, she could never imagine herself being imprisoned.
Mary was born in Dandora, where she attended school all the way through college.
Following graduation from college, she obtained employment as a receptionist in a hotel.
She made friends with a group of people who were frequent customers and became their friend. The buddies used to reserve a hotel in order to organize their heist operations.
She was gradually introduced to the rest of the group.
"They assured me that my task would be straightforward in exchange for a ksh 50,000 payment.
I'd rent a car and pretended to be picking up my pals from the airport. After boarding the vehicle, the driver might be taken to the wilderness "In an interview, she explained.
They may be able to escape and then be killed at various points. They took a vehicle that was equipped with a cartracker one day. They were being pursued, but were eventually apprehended by police.
"The day I was rescued by the police was the fourth time I had managed to avoid death," she explained.
Mary was apprehended and condemned to a life term in jail.
