2. NOT GIVING SPACE
This happens mainly when you are in a 14 SEATER matatu, the thieves move sideways to allow you space to pass through instead of alighting to allow you comfortable space to get out or in the matatu. They refuse to create space as you try to shove your way through, they ransack your pockets because they know you are focused on squeezing your way out or in of the vehicle before the matatu starts moving.
3. ENTERING THE CAR WITH MANY CHILDREN
some of these thieves will pretend to be passengers and get on board with many children. Since they don’t want to pay fare for all of them, they will ask fellow passengers to assist them by carrying a child for them.
The gangster will sit back as he oversees the children, who will be then have made themselves comfortable on your lap, as they steal things from bags placed on or beside them by the victim… Very sad.
These bad guys sit beside you with oversized garments that will end up covering part of your body. As the vehicle moves on, unknown to you, beneath the garment, they are busy cutting open your bag and stealing things.
5. SEAT BELT Public Transport also known as matatus are infamous for bad, tattered or lack of seat belts in them. Often, they are shoved into seats and only make an appearance when a traffic officer stops the vehicle for inspection.
This time passengers are told to hurry and put on seatbelts, leaving them turning in their seats searching for these faulty gadgets.
Thieves have taken advantage of this by asking fellow passengers to try and locate a seatbelt for them ad as you turn looking for the snap, they pull things out of your bag or steal all u have.
6. PRETENDING TO SLEEP
They pretend to be sleeping and this will annoy you as they do it by snoring and leaning on you. They are, however, not asleep. By constantly nodding off into you and distracting you, they pull things out of your pockets if you are not aware at all.
