arrested matatu

A bus conductor who allegedly pushed a security guard out of a moving vehicle over Sh10 on Sunday leading to his death has been arrested.

The security guard died after he was ran over by the bus.

The driver of the KBW 110E bus, which belongs to City Shuttle Sacco and plies the Kangemi-CBD route, is still at large.

The incident took place near St Marks ACK Church on Waiyaki Way. Walter Ochieng was on his way to work at that time.

Police say the conductor, who is being held at Parklands police station, denied pushing Ochieng out of the vehicle.

Ochieng was allegedly pushed out of the bus after a disagreement with the conductor over Sh10.

He had boarded the bus in Kangemi and was to alight at Safaricom after he paid Sh20.

“An argument later ensued between the two and the conductor, who was manning the door, pushed him out of the vehicle after he told him he was a bother,” a witness told the Star.

Ochieng worked for First Force Security Company as well as G4S. He lived at Gatina in Kawangware.

The vehicle is being held at Parklands police station as Ochieng’s body was taken to City Mortuary.
