Police in Nairobi are looking for a rogue tout who allegedly pushed out a 28-year-old Kenyan woman from a moving matatu.
Florence Wanjiru sustained serious injuries after the conductor of a Kileleton Sacco matatu plying the Kileleshwa-Lavington route threw her out of the vehicle.
CCTV footage showed Wanjiru boarding a passenger bus in the night at Yongli casino and restaurant located in Hurlingham, where she worked.
Later that night, a Good Samaritan called her kin to inform them that their daughter had been involved in an accident and sustained severe injuries.
“Once we got the call, we rushed to the hospital to see her and she was in bad condition,” Wanjiru’s uncle John Chege told Citizen TV.
She was later referred to Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH) where she allegedly remained unattended for several hours before succumbing to injuries.
Wanjiru's mother, Beatrice said her daughter narrated how the conductor hit her with a metal road before pushing her out of the moving bus.
Police are using the CCTV footage to unravel the mystery surrounding the incident.
Kilimani OCPD Michael Muchiri said the driver of the bus was arrested but the conductor has gone into hiding.
“All indicators are clear the Sacco is Killeton, we already have one suspect in custody the driver…we are continuing with the investigations…,” said Muchiri.
The family of the deceased wants police to expedite investigations into the matter as they seek justice for their daughter. They want Kileton Sacco compelled to produce the rogue conductor.
