Disturbing photos of a Kenyan matatu driver who was captured using his mobile phone while doing 80km/h has gone viral on social media, sparking outcry.
The pictures were first shared online on Wednesday by a Facebook user identified as Kisii Bin Kisii who was seemingly among the passengers aboard the vehicle.
In the photos, the Akorino driver is busy on his phone sending a text message and appears less concerned about the steering wheel.
The passenger disclosed that the public service vehicle (PSV) registration number KCK 008M belonged to 2NK Sacco.
A close look on the matatu’s speedometer shows the vehicle was moving at 80km/h and there is an approaching car.
The route on which the vehicle was plying was not immediately established.
Online users who reacted to the photos condemned the driver for putting the lives of his passengers at risk and called for his arrest.
