Elderly white man run-over by Matatu around Moi Avenue

An elderly white man has been killed at Moi Avenue as he was crossing the road

Matatu culture in Nairobi

Reports going round on social media say that the man was hit by a matatu which was speeding to escape the traffic built at the Moi Avenue around lunch time. Unfortunately the white man was caught off guard as the vehicle run him over as he was crossing the zebra crossing.

After the accident the matatu driver is said to have escaped on foot leaving behind the vehicle and the man lying on the road as reported by Tuko. This is however one of the many unreported cases of the rowdy matatu’s running over people in the streets of Nairobi.

The matatu culture is taking a horrible turn as many young drivers feel the need for speed, harassing most people while crossing. Most drivers no longer recognize the Zebra crossing zone and this has left many people hospitalized and dead for the carelessness that of such

Anyway, the matatu is currently in police custody as they trace the owner and the driver of the matatu. More details  to be released soon.
