robbed at the parking of a five-star hotel, in an up-market area of a
major city, and right inside a tour van is not something one would have
expected, but this is the ordeal that greeted me and my colleagues from
the Media Council of Kenya on arrival in Jo'burg at exactly 1pm on
And this in broad daylight at exactly 1pm local time!
But God is
great no one was harmed though we lost everything - passports, money,
jewels, visa cards, phones, ipads and all. Courtesy of our host - the
Press Council of SA and our High Commissioner here Ambassador Wamoto, we
have temporary travel documents and are able to carry on with our
duties here as detectives do their job. The story of our lives!
DrS: Mr Muta is communications officer for the government of Kenya. Which makes this robbery even more shocking.
