Matatu crew on the spot for attacking and assaulting female passengers
A matatu crew is on the spot for allegedly attacking and harassing its passengers.
The matatu conductor and driver of the Prestige Sacco plying the Ngong Road route allegedly attacked the passengers after they refused to move to accommodate more passengers.
One of the passengers claims that the conductor of the matatu took her phone and broke it after they attempted to film the whole commotion.
“We had boarded the matatu on our way to Racecourse but when we got to Adams, the conductors insisted on carrying more passengers, but the we refused. He then gave back my colleague her bus fare and ordered that we alight from the vehicle,” narrated the passenger.
“When they noticed that we were recording them, they then took my phone and broke it,” she says.
According to the passengers, they had refused to move because accommodating more passengers meant flouting the set Covid-19 protocols and therefore putting their lives at risk.
The affected passengers have recorded statements at the Kilimani Police Station.
