A bolt client on Wednesday night pulled a trigger on the windscreen of the taxi car after quarrelling over 320 Kenya shillings.
The driver by the name Brown Mwangi claimed that he carried the passenger whose destination was Karen and on reaching, the lady refused to pay claiming that the boyfriend would settle the bill.
She even ordered the driver to leave because “money would follow him.” Feeling shortchanged, the bolt driver rejected the idea of leaving and swore to park within the vicinity until the money was paid.
However, the rogue client went to the house only to come back with a gun, which she used to smash the car windscreen. The client further threatened the driver that her father was a famous city lawyer and that reporting her to the police would be an exercise in futility.
“She later went inside, came back with a gun and smashed my car windscreen. She also said that her father is a renown lawyer and that I wont report her or take any action against her.” He said.
Incidences of taxi drivers and clients being at loggerheads have been common with the two parties failing to agree on the payments. In most instances, the clients fail to disagree with the final fare imposed on them after the ride, claiming that it is inflated.

However, some rogue passengers just refuse to pay intentionally like this latest event involving a woman and a bolt driver. Mwangi registered the complaint with his company then reported the incident to Karen’s Hardy Police Station.
