On safety in Nairobi

I still find it difficult to believe, but...

You know - you often hear gossip about stuff happening to people here in Kenya. Mostly to mzungus (read: white), but not only. You know - things like car jacking, side mirrors being stolen in the traffic jam (when you can't open door to run after thief) and breaking and entering, rape, murder and so on...

But yesterday Alison came home and said - I lost rear bumper. I thought - damn, again this black gangsta slang shit... But she meant literally - someone stole rear bumper of our car! But... I mean - how? When? And most importantly - why?

And then I remembered - dude, T.I.A.

Why? For the same reason people in .pl are stealing bridges, ATMs or public phones.
