Police Officer Ejected By An Angry Passenger From Matatu For Slapping Driver

There have been claims of PSV operators claiming that they have been assaulted by the traffic police officers over the years.

A video that has surfaced in the interweb proves these claims as it shows an angry passenger who confronted a police officer and ejecting him from the public service vehicle (PSV).

The police officer is said to have assaulted the PSV driver, an action that angered the passengers who in return defended the driver.

The video that was shared by Kevin Teya on Tuesday 6 October 2020, showed the police officer who occupied the passenger's seat next to the driver. On the same seat, there was a male passenger wearing a red and white checked shirt. The police officer could be seen trying to take the keys from the driver and while the driver was resisting, the police officer slapped the driver for resisting. This action angered the passengers and the passenger who was sitting next to the driver started blocking the police officer from taking the keys as well as assaulting the driver.

"What kind of law is that? Why are you beating the driver?" The passenger seated next to the driver asked the police officer.

"We are going to work..." another female passenger could be heard from the back.

Netizens were not left behind to give their views on the issue. There are some that felt that both the driver and the police officer were wrong as the driver could have stopped and the police officer should not have assaulted the driver.
