In recent years, Gataka has been mapped as a top crime hotspot in Kajiado County.
The area is rapidly developing with many people settling there.
Just last month, some traumatizing CCTV videos emerged showing a lady being ambushed by heavily armed robbers at her posh home within the same neighborhood.
Police are yet to issue an official statement regarding the matter.
