An unidentified man has shocked many motorists near Cabanas, Mombasa road after passing on suddenly while seated in an Embassava matatu.
In what is suspected to be Covid-19, the middle aged man was pulled out of the car then put in a body bag. The body bag was then sprayed by health officials who were within the vicinity.
The unfortunate event caused a serious traffic snarl-up with curious road onlookers keen to have a glimpse of what was happening. The police also had a rough time dispersing the crowds.
The shocked passengers had to get out of the matatu after realizing that the man was just seated without even turning on his seat.
In the meantime, the Embassava matatu where the man died in was sprayed with chemicals by the health officers.
The passengers were also urged to go for a 14 day mandatory quarantine. Of late, cases of matatus carrying excess passengers has been a common phenomena despite the containment measures laid down by the ministry of health.
The habit endangers not only the lives of the passengers but also the ones in charge of the vehicle such as the conductors and the matatus. With the sudden death experienced today in the matatu along Mombasa road, it is high time passengers follow the laid down Covid-19 measures for their own safety.
The government of Kenya had recently tightened these regulations in the wake of the second wave of attack. As a result, it is mandatory to put on face masks while walking on the streets, failure to which you risk an instant fine of 20,000 Kenya shillings.
