The United States Embassy has issued a security alert over residential estates within Nairobi County.

In a statement dated Friday, March 15, the Embassy noted that there had been increased incidents of insecurity within the estates in the city.

Incidents of phone and purse snatching were highlighted to be on the rise.

Consequently, the embassy advised their citizens to undertake various precautions including keeping a low profile and locking doors when stuck in traffic.

“There are reports of increased criminal activity in residential areas of Nairobi. Incidents include crimes of opportunity such as purse and phone snatching. The government of Kenya is taking measures to place more police in high-crime areas.

“Do not display signs of wealth, such as wearing expensive jewelry or watches, or flashing large sums of money; keep valuables, such as phones, concealed,” read the advisory in part.

US citizens were also called upon to roll up their windows whenever they are in traffic.

On the other hand, the embassy advised that individuals should avoid confronting those who attempt to rob them.

“Be aware of your surroundings. Do not physically resist any robbery attempt and remain calm. Confrontation with these individuals often leads to violence,” the embassy added.

However, the US Embassy did not mention the specific estates which were experiencing the recent surge in crime.
