Luck seems to have run out for a bus tout who allegedly threw a passenger out of a moving vehicle over a Ksh 10 tussle leading to the passengers death.
The security guard who was identified as Walter Ochieng was on his way to work when he met his death after he was crushed by a bus.The incident happened on Sunday 2nd June 2018 near St Marks ACK Church on Waiyaki Way.
The driver of the KBW 110E bus, which belongs to City Shuttle Sacco and plies the Kangemi-CBD route, is still at large.
According to The Star, Police say the conductor, who is being held at Parklands police station, denied pushing Ochieng out of the vehicle.
“We are appealing to the passengers who were in that vehicle to give us information to help us with investigations,” Nairobi DCI boss Ireri Kamwende said yesterday. Ochieng was allegedly pushed out of the bus after a disagreement with the conductor over Sh10.
He had boarded the bus in Kangemi and was to alight at Safaricom after he paid Sh20.
“An argument later ensued between the two and the conductor, who was manning the door, pushed him out of the vehicle after he told him he was a bother,” a witness told the Star.
The bus then ran over Ochieng, killing him instantly. Yesterday, the management of City Shuttle declined to comment on the incident.
Ochieng worked for First Force Security Company as well as G4S. He lived at Gatina in Kawangware.
The vehicle is being held at Parklands police station as Ochieng’s body was taken to City Mortuary.
Mr Ochieng is among the many victims who died in the hands of careless drivers and conductors ,in 2015Mr Alex Madaga, 37,died after speeding many hours in ambulance unattended after a hit and run accident on Waiyaki Way.
Prior to his death he was bleeding in his brain and every second was crucial for his survival something that was taken for granted leading to his death.
