Mwangi wa Mbugua, the presenter in charge of the program, described how the thugs broke into the studios after cutting the electric fence in an interview with Nation.

He claimed that when the ambush occurred, he was in his office when they gave him the order to help them get inside the studios.

“The armed men entered the studio and issued a threat to kill anyone who stood in their way of robbing. They were quite agitated when they learned that the program was broadcast live on Facebook and that the station had CCTV cameras, and they requested to be taken to the CCTV data center, he said.


The awful incident lasted 30 minutes, according to a different presenter named John (who did not reveal his identity). He said that before seizing people’s phones, they made everyone in the room pay.
