This comes barely after another video surfaced on the internet showing another Kenya Mpya Bus speeding past 80Km/hr.

Reports indicated that the woman was standing by the roadside when the driver, escaping police, knocked her down and ran over her legs, crushing them to pieces.

In 2016, then Nairobi deputy governor Jonathan Mueke distanced himself from claims that he was an owner or the chaotic Kenya Mpya buses, saying that he only deals in Real Estate.

Splitting Hairs?

In the videos, however, Kenyans on Twitter noted that the private driver who took the video could have ensured his safety first before being hell-bent to prove his point.

NTSA is yet to respond about the two videos, days after they were posted online, leading to speculations whether they are protecting the owners of the rogue buses.

the law states that all public service vehicles must drive within the 80Km/hr speed limit.

All the vehicles should also be fitted with Speed governors to check their speeds.
