A Wines and Spirits shop in Umoja One Market was on Friday robbed by two men brandishing guns.
According to East African Legislative Assembly (EALA) MP, Simon Mbugua, the police are pursuing the thieves.
“This robbery took place in Umoja One Market. Police in pursuit of the suspects,” he wrote on Facebook.
In the video, two men walk into the shop at around 9.44 pm and order a woman and man already at the shop into a corner.
Another one who appears to be a customer has his phone snatched and forced on the floor.
They go ahead and ransack the place for money, which they deposit into a blue bag.
One makes away with liquor. They then casually walk out of the shop.
