A driver and his tout are being looked for by police after they threw out two people off their moving vehicle near JKUAT Main Campus. One victim succumbed to injuries from the incident.
Juja OCPD Dorothy Migarisha has confirmed that the incident was first reported on Saturday, 6th February when the two victims reported the matter to the station after disagreement over fare left them brutalised. The OCPD added that the two victims, John Njoroge and now the late Judy Wanjiku Nyaga had incurred slight injuries on their hands and legs at the time they were reporting the incident.
According to witness accounts, the matatu driver wanted to run them over after his tout threw them out of the moving vehicle with the public reacting quickly by pulling them out of the matatu’s path.
The two victims received treatment at a Ruiru hospital and were later on discharged.
It is unfortunate that yesterday, a brother of the injured lady informed the Juja OCS that her sister has passed away after complaining of headaches. She passed away at Thika Level 5 Hospital.
The Memba Saccor vehicle involved in the incident has been tracked to Mwea and was taken to the local police station with the police in search of the driver and tout.
