Officials of a school were left in shock after CCTV camera shows a
middle-aged woman stealing a laptop belonging to the director of Trinity
International Kindergarten located along James Gichuru Road in
reports that the school’s director, Alice Mwangi Njuguna, the suspect,
who visited the school Thursday 2 o’clock, identified herself by one
name – Mildred –, but she did not record her full name, I.D. number,
telephone number and physical address in the school’s visitors’
“She came and told us that she was interested in enrolling her 3-year-old child in the school, and she asked to be taken round.
According to her, she wanted to survey the offices and the school
compound. When she completed the mini tour, she came back to our
administration block’s waiting lounge, sat down and requested for water.
After this, ‘Mildred’ asked the school administrator to take her driver
round the school,” Ms Mwangi told eDaily.
“At that point, she got an opportunity to enter my office and steal my
laptop. She got to know about my office and the laptop because she had
left her bag in the waiting lounge when she was being taken round. My
administrator, however, told her not to leave her bag on the seat; and
asked if she could keep it for her inside my office.
In the process, ‘Mildred’ observed that the office door had not been
locked – just shut. That is how she gained entry into the office,” added
“Unfortunately the registration number of the car they left in – a
Toyota NZE model – was not captured on another CCTV recording. We did
not manage to trace the suspect,” she said.
According to the director, she was not in the school premises when the
incident happened – she only learnt of the theft when she entered her
office Friday 8pm and found her laptop missing.
Ms Mwangi says the school administrator is quite young, so she probably
has not been exposed to such scams. Ms Mwangi has reported the incident
to Msongari Police Station which took copies of the CCTV footage for
in-depth investigations Saturday.
