Radio Jambo morning host, Joe Gidi had a horrible experience this week with a certain driver that made the former singer even speak out about it.

Using his Facebook page, Gidi related that an Uber driver had answered him in a rude manner after Gidi's refusal to tell him where he would be going on the trip.

The driver took his refusal to cooperate badly and told Gidi to buy his own car if he couldn't tell him where he was going.

As a result of this experience, the popular radio show host asked fans for their opinion on whether it was a requirement for an Uber driver to call and find out where someone was going?

His post is below:

Is it a requirement for Uber driver to call and ask where you are going?...huyu ameniambia ninunue gari yangu inipeleke kama sitaku kumwambia mahali naendaπŸ€”πŸ€£

Although fans and followers instantly commiserated with him over the rude response, others explained the rationale of why a driver would ask for a passenger's route.

Check out some of those responses below;

Nicholine Sheryl Kuna mwingine aliniambia nikiona ako mbali, mahali naenda ni karibu nitembee πŸ™†β€β™€οΈπŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ

Joshua Odhiambo Nyamori It's actually against Uber rules. It is the company's way of ensuring drivers don't discriminate against certain category of clients.d

John Osogo Ogw Ruaka is a NO GO ZONE for Uber drivers after 9pm

Zabet Dimba He is asking where you are going for safety reasons (driver & passenger)

Nyaboke Ondieki I think the App should be fair to them and let them know where the client is going. For instance where I live it is hard to get a return trip after some hours, in other areas they have expressed security concerns. Therefore I always volunteer the information.

Robert Nyariara Asking questions of where one is going especially at a certain hour that's veeeery positive koz NBI is full of unfamiliar unfaithful pple hence in the discussion of where one is going gives the driver confidence that he is in safe hands.

Billy Singh They have a right to know where he is heading to. Whether to refuel etc

Jos Uncolonized And what the problem with that if you are a genuine rider,,,,and for those who are saying it's against Uber rules,,why would I go to a place I will not be comfortable with,,, 

Lilian Muga 🀣🀣🀣🀣.Mimi I usually just tell them ndio kama hajiskii kuenda huko aende akiendanga. There's nothing good in riding with an angry driver πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Lorna Kiyayi The app doesn't show them your destination

Omuonge Wuon Mbidhi Mwingine juzi aliniambia ati "boss fanya hivi, panda hiyo App ikupeleke!" Awuoro joBolt!

Lisa Mwangi Maina There is no problem in asking...just answer. Some places are a no go zone to some people and they ,like everyone else,have their reasons. Tuishi vyema pamoja.

Jymoh Meya Yeah that is hakuna haja akupeleke alafu ulipe 150 nunua yako

Olga Bosibori I think they also ask that to see if they want to head into that direction.. e.g.. maybe he stays in Rongai, but currently Ako tao, he will opt to take a ride ya Langata road, Karen etc, towards his home.. wengine ni ujeuri tu

Thomas Ouko Itabdidi umwelewe. Labda bibi alisa aribu siku yake. Wach mon tek ta!
