Days after a Modern Coast Express bus caught fire near Mtito Andei on the Mombasa-Nairobi highway, another of the transport company’s buses has caused an outrage on social media.
A video that has been shared widely on social media shows the bus driving on the wrong side of the road at a very high speed at the Tharaka Nithi black spot.
On Sunday, the management of the company took immediate action dismissing the unidentified driver and handing him over to NTSA for cancellation of his license.
