A matatu driver operating at Nairobi County has allegedly robbed a female passenger of her mobile phone after engaging in a heated debate over an engagement ring. 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.
The driver attempted to throw the lady out of the moving vehicle after he sensed defeat but luckily the lady never fell off. He reportedly snatched the lady's handbag and took her phone in revenge before dropping her at undesignated stage and sped off. Shocked by the follow up of activities, she reported the matter to the police who nabbed the said suspect.
The suspect was presented before Kibera Court Principal Magistrate, Sharon Maroro to answer theft charges. The charge papers show the suspect stole a mobile phone worth 32,000 from a lady who sat in the driver's co_seat. The driver, however, denied all charges and freed on Ksh 20,000 bond with a surety of the same amount. The case is set to be heard on Monday 25th of October 2021.
