Kamau was accosted by two Sacco officials upon arrival in Kasarani from town, demanding to know how much he’d charged the passengers.

A fight ensued with the pair beating up Kamau, accusing him of tainting the Sacco’s image.

According to Winfred Kimanzi, the deceased’s wife, her husband arrived home with a swollen face and injuries to the mouth.

“As we were taking him to hospital, he was complaining of severe body pain, so much that he could barely walk,” she stated.

Habit

Kamau was taken to Kiambu Hospital where he succumbed to the injuries sustained during the assault.

However, when contacted, MSL distanced itself from the duo, claiming that they are not its officials.

A former conductor with the MSL sacco, Samuel Mungai, claimed that there has been a habit of certain officers in the Sacco beating up matatu operators.

Meanwhile, a post-mortem is set to be conducted on Kamau’s body on Monday to ascertain the cause of death.
