Robbers raid billionaire’s home, steal money and jewelry: Manu Chandaria

Police in Nairobi are investigating the raiding of industrialist and philanthropist Dr. Manu Chandaria’s home Sunday night.

Reports say the gang entered Dr. Chandaria’s heavily-secured Muthaiga residence in spite of the heavy exchange of gunfire with police personnel guarding the home. However, according to the police, family members were unhurt but the criminals made away with an unknown amount of cash and valuables.

The police said the gang members escaped to the neighboring Karura forest albeit with gun injuries.

The robbers are said to have overpowered an Administration Police (AP) officer who was among those guarding the home after which they took his G3 rifle.

Such attacks are rare in the well-appointed address that is home to who-is-who in Kenya including former President Mwai Kibaki, Charles Njonjo, businessman Jimmy Wanjigi, and numerous ambassadors among others.

Nairobi police boss Rashid Yakub said they are pursuing the attackers. The Ap’s was later found in a thicket near the home.

Dr. Chandaria leads a simple life and has a keen interest in social issues and healthcare. For instance, in the video clip embedded below, he donated Sh6 million to support Moi Teaching and Referral Hospital to set up facilities for cancer treatment in 2014.
