Uganda police hand over Kenyan suspects who pushed man out of speeding bus

By Kennedy Gachuhi | September 20th 2018

Ugandan police have handed over two Kenyans suspected to have caused the death of a man who was allegedly pushed out of a speeding bus. Twenty-six-year-old Robert Warinda died when he fell off the bus at Migaa on the Nakuru-Eldoret highway on August 14.

The two suspects have been in the custody of Ugandan police in Kampala since early this month, when they were arrested after the family of the deceased reported the matter to the Ugandan authorities.

Speaking to The Standard, Rongai DCIO Dorcas Cherui said Kenyan detectives received the suspects at the Busia border on Tuesday evening and arrived at Salgaa Police Station Wednesday morning.

Those arrested were co-drivers of a bus owned by Spider Bus Company, which has part of its fleet operating along the Nairobi-Kampala route.

Ms Cherui said that although it was still not clear whether Mr Warinda was thrown out or accidentally fell from the bus, the two had a case to answer as they did not stop after the incident.
