Two suspects accused of fatally throwing a 28-year-old Kenyan woman out of a moving matatu in Nairobi last month have been presented in court.
The two; Joseph Muasya and John Ndwai were arraigned before High Court judge Jessie Lessit on Wednesday but did not take plea as the court directed they first undergo a mental examination before being charged with murder.
Muasya and Ndwai, who operated a public service vehicle belonging to Kileton SACCO, are accused of assaulting Ms. Florence Wanjiku before pushing her out of the moving matatu on Valley Road in Nairobi on June 25th.
The deceased was reportedly traveling home from Hurlinghum when the incident happened. She was rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital where she succumbed to her injuries.
Last week, National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) revoked licenses of the two, with Director-General Francis Meja vowing the driver and conductor will never be allowed to operate public service vehicles in the country.
The two will be charged on July 25th.
