City Commuter Crushed to Death After Being Thrown Out of Moving Minibus

February 21, 2018

The family of a man who was reportedly thrown out of a moving matatu and crushed to death is demanding the arrest of the matatu crew involved.

21-year-old Dennis Masila was commuting to Highrise on Friday at around 8 am when the incident happened.

His elder brother, Justus Wambua, narrated how he found his brother’s body lying near the Mbagathi Way flyover after being called to the scene by his other brother Benson Kioko.

“Eyewitnesses said my brother was thrown out of the matatu by the conductor and on falling the minibus went on to crush him to death. By the time I arrived, the minibus had fled but some youths who had pursued it reported to the police near the Railway’s roundabout,” Wambua said.

The driver and conductor of the minibus are said to have fled from the angry mob. The minivan was impounded at the Kilimani Police Station.

“Our brother (Kioko) went to Kilimani and reported the incident on Friday under OB 07/16/02/2018 and he even noticed the matatu KCC 420M had been detained.

“Unfortunately when I went to the station on Monday to follow up on the case, the matatu was nowhere to be seen. Police told me they had taken all its details including the driver’s license,” Wambua said.

The family is now demanding answers on why the matatu was released without any arrests.
