Reportedly it's during the handshake that the conductor allegedly bribed the officer.But why do vehicle owners bribe traffic police officers?

The majority of vehicles on our roads are unroadworthy, overspeeding, carry excess passengers and sometimes the driver might not be licensed.

To rescue matatu crew from being arrested they prefer to bribe their way out of trouble.Normally a 100 shillings or more is usually given to the officer.

Sadly, these vehicles usually end up causing grisly road accidents leading to the death of innocent civilians.

If you're a passenger and notice something wrong with the vehicle you've boarded speak up.

What are your thoughts about this?
