In Kenya, Robbery involves stealing anything by using force or threatening to use violence on the other hand Robbery with Violence involves wounding, beating, striking or using any other personal violence to any person to steal.

Practical Example

  • Robbery example: If you go to a shop with a Gun and steal without causing any harm or injury to the owner (who is present), then that is Robbery
  • Robbery with violence example: If you shot the owner or beat him, then that is Robbery with Violence. If the owner dies after shooting, then that is a different case.

You can read what the law says on section 295 and 296 of the Penal Code to understand more.
