Two Kenya Airports Authority (KAA) employees were on Saturday arrested after they were caught on tape stealing luggage straps belonging to African Freight Services.

According to the DCI, the two are Evans Akola Agunda and Mercy Chepkorir.

Akola is a aircraft marshaller and Chepkorir is an intern.

In a video posted on Twitter by the DCI, the marshaller alights from a Toyota, walks over to where the straps are and picks a couple of them.

His female colleague does not leave the vehicle. After a minute and fifty seconds, the duo drives away.

They will be arraigned in court on Monday.

“An Aircraft Marshaller Kenya Airports -Mr. Evans Okola Agunda and an intern-Ms. Mercy Chepkorir, were arrested early today after being spotted stealing luggage straps belonging to the African Freight Services at JKIA. The two suspects are in custody and will be charged on Monday,” DCI said in a tweet.

The video elicited a lot of views with some Kenyans sympathizing with the looters who will most likely lose their jobs.
