Kenya Commercial Bank was on Monday the butt of jokes after robbers dug a 30-metre tunnel under its Thika branch and stole sh50 million over the weekend.

Kenyans took to social media and wondered what the bank’s iconic lions were doing as its branch was being robbed.

Others compared the heist to a movie and wanted it made in to one.

The robbers reportedly accessed the strongroom through an underground tunnel. They then used oxy-acetylene welding technology to generate a flame that drilled holes into the two safes that had the money.
