Matatu madness returns to haunt Nairobi road users – VIDEO

A shocking video clip has surfaced online of matatu crew dangerously driving and hanging on the door and windows.

In the clip a skimpily dressed woman is seen dancing on the door of a fast moving matatu as her male colleagues cheer her.

Another matatu nicknamed ‘Bully wa Mtaa’ from Kayole route is also seen being dangerously driven as some of its crew are seen hanging dangerously on the door and windows.

This comes just days after a driver was arrested for allegedly drugging and robbing a passenger on Saturday.

This is the latest of the raising incidents of unruly behaviour by matatu operators.


In July, Angela Nyang’or made claims on social media of how she and her sister were roughed up by matatu touts who were forcing them to board their vehicle.

On September 25, four people died and six others were injured after a matatu veered off the road and overturned on Lang’ata Road, Nairobi. According to police, the accident occurred as a result of speeding.

Kenyans on Twitter (KOT) on Tuesday started a campaign under the hashtag #StopMatatuMenace, pointing an accusing finger at the National Transport and Safety Authority, for the “mismanagement” of the matatu industry.

Some users even lamented the death of former Transport Minister the late John Michuki, who to a large extent reined in on the matatu industry during his tenure.
