NAIROBI, Kenya, Aug 10 – Detectives have arrested the driver and conductor of a Githurai bus, accused of pushing a passenger from a moving vehicle, to his death.

Director of Criminal Investigations George Kinoti said the two will face murder a charge.

The deceased, Gerald Kimondo, aged 24 years, died on spot after he was pushed from the speeding car following a disagreement.

DCI Kinoti: “The matatu registration number KCC O21A is in our custody following the death of Kimondo.”

“The two, 33-year-old Naphtali Fondo and 20-year-old Alex Gikonyo, pushed the deceased from a moving vehicle causing his death,” the DCI said through a statement posted on the Directorate’s social media platforms.

The two were released on a Sh60,000 police bond following last week’s incident, pending investigations. ”

Ironically, the same bus was involved in a similar incident, this time involving a student of the Nairobi Institute of Business Studies, who equally succumbed to injuries,” added the DCI

They would later re-paint the bus and resumed work, as if nothing ever happened.

The two will be arraigned in court on Monday.
