Cases of Matatu crew colluding to steal from passengers is on the rise.
There’s no justification for stealing even with the hard economic times.
Why can’t one ask the government to make things better by assembling, petitioning, picketing and demonstrating according to article 37 of the constitution?
Our problems and hardships are directly linked to the people we’ve elected to represent us; the government.
Here is a case of stealing by a Matatu crew in mombasa.
I just wanted to alert you that matatu registration number KAU 910E plying the mtwapa/bamburi to town route has rogues running it.
The driver, conductor and some make-believe (fake) passengers are together in it.
Today morning at around 8.30am they attempted to steal my phone. It’s all very well planned.
The conductor says the door can’t be locked and asks for your assistance to close it properly, when you oblige, a fake passenger from behind slips out your phone from your pocket; and after the deed is done.
The conductor and their colleagues starts shouting that something has fallen out of the matatu maybe phone asking if anyone has lost anything; when you check and find your phone missing; the driver stops the vehicle as if to assist you alight and go pick it up from the road side.
I was lucky as I had heard of this scam and instead of alighting in a panic, i turned around immediately and saw my phone in the hand of the passenger behind just as he was trying to hide it.
I snatched it back from him.
Note: Matatu is Public Transport vehicle in Kenya.
