The Director of Criminal Investigations has once again commended the 2NK Sacco driver who was fired for reporting drunk students.
George Kinoti told John Maina Muthoni to continue upholding the moral value of standing up for what is right, even if it meant putting his career at risk.
The DCI boss and Maina finally met at the Mazingira complex on Thursday evening alongside Limuru East nominated MCA, Hon Mercy Nungari.
“During their meeting at the Mazingira complex, Mr Kinoti once again commended the driver for the action that he took in trying to dissuade the students from self destruction, adding that drugs and substance abuse had ruined the lives of many young men and women. He decried the increasing cases of drug usage among students that had rendered parents and guardians helpless in trying to shape the future of their children,” a statement by DCI read.
Kenyans were however curious to know what the DCI boss offered the driver after asking to meet him while others claimed that the meeting was null and void since Kinoti should be behind bars serving a four month jail term over contempt of court.
“Apart from praising him, what else did they help him with?” Edwin Mukolwe posed.
Gathuki Ngahu said, “It’s null and void until the fugitive DCI cools his heels behind bars for 4 months as ordered by the court. Until then, you are no different from those 2NK officials.”
While Qui wa Mwash wrote,”Why has 2NK not been sued for wrongful dismissal? And shame on them by the way. Shame! Shame! Shame! Hongera to this awesome moral hero.”
Kinoti had asked the driver to contact him after learning that he had been sacked for being brave enough to report the intoxicated students.
Maina was ferrying the students of Fred Grammer’s mixed secondary school from Nyeri to Nairobi for their mid term break before noticing that they were smoking bhang and drinking alcohol.
He asked them to stop but the students told him to concentrate or else he would face dire consequences.
The driver decided to take the 7 boys and 7 girls to Sagana police station after he was unable to contain them only for them to escape through the matatu’s windows.
Maina however landed a job in the Nyeri county government’s transport department.
