On Thursday afternoon, March 5, a matatu driver was caught on camera speeding off with a traffic police officer dangling on the door along the Eldoret-Malaba Road.
The incident occurred after the officer pulled over the matatu under the 2NK Sacco and the two got into a heated argument.
“I was travelling from Eldoret to Lumakanda when the driver asked the conductor for Ksh50. The conductor said he did not have the amount he was being asked for.
“The traffic officer asked the front seat passenger to alight and asked to speak to the driver. The two did not agree and the driver started driving,” a passenger in the vehicle told kenyagist.com.

Passengers shout down the driver who stops the vehicle a couple of times with the officer still maintiang his precarious grip on the door until the drama eventually comes to an end.
“The driver recklessly drove off. He stopped like thrice for the cop to alight,” the passenger narrated.
