The former colleagues who were angered by the man’s professionalism and good customer service skills had begun wondering what it is that he wanted to prove. Rumours had even begun spreading that the behaviour was typical of someone eyeing a county assembly seat.
“What point does he want to make?” one of them posed. “That he did not bribe to get his driving license? That he went to a competent driving school? Nonsense!”
Traffic police officers along the route the driver operated on were also relieved to hear he had been fired.
An officer who declined to be named claimed that in his brief stint in the area, he had been unable to extract even a single bribe from the said driver since he never broke any traffic rules.
“It was so frustrating. It reached a point where I got tired of flagging him down. He is the wrong fellow for business. If every matatu driver were like him, I would have no more reason to be a traffic police officer. I would just quit and find something else to do — maybe hawking,” confessed the officer.
