A public service vehicle ‘conductor’ based in Nairobi has restored faith in humanity and the notorious matatu sector after a kind gesture towards a granny.
The conductor, dressed in his maroon uniform, was snapped helping a grandma in the busy streets of Nairobi and the photos shared on social media.
As the story goes, the unidentified man helped the elderly woman alight from a matatu. He then held her hand and helped her maneuver the chaotic hustle and bustle of the city centre.
With the granny’s bag on his shoulder, the conductor was kind enough to take her to the next bus stop.
This is what a social media user who witnessed the incident wrote on social media:
“Yesterday(Monday) while in town I could not fail to notice the young man help this grandma alight from a matatu where he is a conductor. He went ahead to help her cross the busy streets of Nairobi while carrying her bag. He took her to connect the bus to her next Destination and saw him run back to his matatu which had already left. This lady could not hide her joy as she was boarding the next bus. May God bless you young man and may God connect you to your Destiny helpers too.”
If photos of Matatu conductors doing bad things trend,maybe photos of them doing good things like this act of kindness should also trend pic.twitter.com/SAJHm17AGx
