Kenya Wildlife Service officers are hunting down six lions said to have sneaked out of Nairobi National Park.
Communications officer Paul Udoto said the animals have boundaries but on Friday roamed to a settlement area in Lang'ata along the Southern bypass.
The animals usually roam up to Kitengela area, Udoto said, noting "people have decided to settle in the wildlife corridor".
He told the Star on phone that the officers are on a search and rescue mission and urged members of the public who see the animals to contact them.
The lions were last seen around the National Housing Corporation houses.
"They are dangerous... We ask the public to help in the search," he said.
