The matatu industry has been one that is murred with a lot of hooligans that have over the years gone around to harass passengers as well as fellow road users.

Cases of road rage among Matatu Operators have always been on a high and it's imperative that the menace is taken care of in the country.
This afternoon, a matatu Tout was caught on camera beating up a passenger and no one did anything about it.
The tout beats up the passenger along the busy Thika Superhighway over unclear reasons as a passerby takes a video of the altercation.
The man taking the video even goes ahead to ask the matatu Tout to stop beating up the man and this is when things get worse.
The matatu driver also steps out the vehicle and the two gang up on the man beating him without any shred of mercy.
Such incidents have become common on our roads and the traffic police need to do more to ensure that this menace is stopped.
