The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) is looking for a matatu driver caught on camera attacking a passenger with a metal rod in a video that has been doing rounds on social media
The video which some netizens are terming as unpleasant to the human eyes shows the two (driver and passenger) arguing before they get physical prompting the driver to get his weapon - a metal rod which he uses to clobber his opponent.
Kenyans have angrily reacted to the video with some accusing the driver of being arrogant and inhuman.
The incident which took place in Nairobi’s Ruaka area has drawn the attention of NTSA officials who now want the driver and conductor of the Matatu registered KAK 251C to turn themselves in.
