Matatus operators protest ‘disappearance’ of sacco official
Traffic along the busy Southern bypass near Kikuyu town was disrupted on Thursday afternoon following a strike by matatu operators.
The matatu operators blocked the road demanding to know the whereabouts of one of their official who they claim was summoned by the police last week and has not been seen since then.
Edward Ng’ang’a, an official of Super Metro Sacco that plies the area, was reportedly summoned to the Kikuyu Police station by a CID officer on Thursday March 17, 2016 and had been missing since then.
“We want them to show us where our brother is because he was last seen here, now that they have locked the offices and left, that means they know his were he is,” Ng’ang’a’s sister Monica Tila said.
Ng’ang’a’s wife Virginia Ng’ang’a claims the police refused to issue her with an OB number when she went to inquire about her husband’s whereabouts.
Nelson Mwangi the chairman of Super Metro Sacco term Ng’ang’a’s disappearance as malicious.
“If it was a traffic police officer who had arrested Ng’ang’a, or summoned him, we would have understood. We don’t understand why the department of CID is involved in this matter,” he said.
