A driver who is accused of being part of a group that drugs and steals from passengers in a matatu will be detained at Kilimani police station for 10 more days before being charged.

This is after the Director of Public Prosecution  sought for at least 14 days to complete their investigations into the matter.

However, a Milimani Magistrate court has ordered that Patrick Kinyanjui Thuku be detained for the 10 days.

Mr Thuku is accused of being part of drugging and robbing incident in which one of the lucky targets, Karimi Mwari, managed to escape and report the incident.

She had, however, lost some of her belongings including one of her phones.

Mr Thuku was arrested on Sunday.

Meanwhile, matatu operators lit bonfires and blocked Naivasha Road in Kawangware protesting the arrest of their colleague.
