Owner of torched Rongai ‘matatu’ threatens arsonists as Police launch man hunt for driver

The owner of a Rongai matatu which was torched on Langata road on Saturday morning by angry ‘Boda boda’ operators has warned of dire consequences if the arsonists do not come out to ‘solve the matter peacefully’. In a social media post, the alleged owner of the James Bond 007 Skyfall branded matatu indicated that if the arsonists did not come out, they would regret the rest of their lives.

Meanwhile, a press statement issued yesterday by the office of the inspector General has indicated that police have launched investigations into the matter and already 23 ‘bodaboda’ operators have been apprehended in connection with the incident.

The matatu registration number KCB 632 M is said to have hit a male cyclist who sustained fatal injuries. The driver, who onlookers said was driving the matatu recklessly fled the scene prompting angry youth to torch the matatu reducing it to a shell. Police have launched a manhunt for the unidentified driver.
