Police are yet to identify and arrest the owner of luggage that exploded and injured two people along Tom Mboya Street in Nairobi on Saturday.

The team investigating the incident said it is relying on CCTV footage captured at the scene.

The two injured victims who include a newspaper vendor and a trolley puller were treated and discharged.

Police have concluded the explosion was caused by an improvised explosive device that went off as it was being ferried to an unknown destination.


The trolley puller told the police he had been hired by a woman wearing hijab and told to deliver the luggage in a box to Kenya Cinema from Baba Dogo bus stop.

On the way, the baggage went off as the owner vanished.
