Safaricom Report Links KDF To Theft Of Their Merchandize During The Westgate Terror Attack

Report on Theft of Safaricom Merchandise During the Wesgate Terror Attack

1. Detailed findings

  1. Introduction

Between 25th and 27th September 2013, during and after a terrorist attack on Westgate Shopping Mall, numerous mobile phones and airtime at Safaricom Westgate Retail Centre were stolen.

We carried out a detailed analysis on stolen merchandise to determine key suspects involved in this theft. The following steps were followed to arrive at the findings in section 1.3 of this report:

  • We identified the serial numbers of the merchandise that was available for sale at Westgate Retail Center as at 25th September 2013 but mysteriously disappeared after the terror attack on the 27th September 2013;
  • We checked the mobile numbers that used or were using the handsets and airtime that had disappeared in the aftermath of the attack;
  • We examined whom among the users of the stolen merchandise were at the “scene of the crime” between the 25th and 27th September 2013, the period the merchandise disappeared;
  • We analysed the connection, if any, between users of the merchandise who were at Westgate and users of the merchandise who were not at Westgate. This is to establish the individuals who had most likely passed on the merchandise to those that were not at the “scene of the crime”;
  • Based on the patterns we had seen from the steps above, we attempted to identify whether any of the suspects was connected to the Kenya Defence Forces (KDF) since most of the individual users of the stolen merchandise were mostly in or around known KDF facilities.
    1. Summary of the findings

Of all the handsets that were stolen from Westgate shop, 528 handsets (valued at KES 5.5 M) had been used on our network as on 10th December 2013.

  • A total of 1,283 unique mobile numbers had used these handsets. 618 of these numbers were found to be frequently located in military sites;
  • 98 mobile numbers had used the stolen handsets more than once;
  • 73 mobile numbers which used the stolen handsets were at Westgate at certain instances during the period of theft (25th to 27th September 2013);
  • Normal operating locations of 48 mobile numbers out of the 73 which were at Westgate at the time of loss seem to be in the military camp locations.

2. Conclusion

We believe that the individuals above who used the stolen merchandise are either military officers or live in military facilities based on the following:

  • They have been consistently located in or around military facilities in the last three months;
  • Some of the individuals used mobile numbers that were registered using military ID numbers;
  • They were located at Westgate between 25th and 27th September when the military rescue operation was ongoing. At that time the premises were restricted and could only be accessed by KDF personnel and other security agents.
  1. Recommendation

We recommend that KDF conducts further investigations to ascertain whether these individuals are members of their organization and if so, hold them accountable for their actions. Safaricom will provide any other information, in its possession, to assist KDF in these investigations.
