VIDEO: CCTV footage catches man with AU official's stolen bag
The suspect, dressed in a white shirt and a black pair of trousers was captured on camera walking away with the bag which also contained the travel documents of the official.
The incident happened on Thursday at around 4.30pm, while the official was in Kenya to attend the sixth Tokyo International Conference on African Development (Ticad-VI) held in Kenya.
Mr Swaleh has since been left stranded as the bag reportedly contained his travel documents, including his African Union, East African Community and Kenyan passports, plus copies of official documents, air tickets, a driver's licence and car keys, among other personal effects. See video:
