The lady who was heading to Central Business District from Lang'ata sat on the driver's co_seat. The driver is said that have noted an expensive ring the lady had worn and insisted a man might have bought the ring. The lady affirmed that she had bought it herself but the driver argued that she could not afford such an expensive jewelry.
