Help Trace these iPad Thieves Targeting Tech Events in Nairobi

So there were two major tech events in Nairobi this week, Pivot East and the East Africa Outsourcing conference. The first event was at Ole Sereni hotel and the Outsourcing event was at Crowne Plaza hotel.  There are a group of delegates targeting events with not so strict security to steal laptops and iPads from delegates.

It happened this week

One of the delegates at the East Africa outsourcing event, Gilda Odera of Sky Web, lost an iPad. The great thing is that most of the photos of the event participants were taken and fortunately the photo of the thief who stole Gilda Odera’s iPad.

Scene 1 – With the iPad still slightly away from him, the guy wants to make a move. The “journalist” on his right might be an imposter and an accomplice. Anyone who know him please get in touch.

Scene 2 – Mission accomplished- ipad has moved and is under the programme brochure-notice how it is jutting out on the side.

Gilda's iPad
