When we talk of Public Service Vehicles (PSVs), a lot comes in our minds and especially because of the hustle that comes with these vehicles on our roads. So today, I listened to this lady giving a testimony of that ill-fated day which really changed her life. The mother of two was going about her business of going to the market to buy some wares for her grocery .So as usual; she boarded a Nissan matatu oblivious of reaching to her destination safely. On reaching her destination, the conductor stopped the vehicle for her to alight but then before she could alight safely, the vehicle started moving.
The reason being that a traffic police had been spotted and so the conductor pushed this lady from the moving vehicle and she fell down but the vehicle was forced to halt it’s journey by other passengers. So as she was being helped to get onto her feet, that’s when she realized that both of her legs were broken and the conductor took off. But she was still taken to hospital where she has been to date; a period of almost two months, yet nothing has been done to follow up with her case to even try bringing to book the conductor who caused all this.
But then she is still stuck in hospital and cannot get specialized treatment on her legs due to lack of funds to cater for this. So she hoped well wishers could come forward and assist her so that she could walk yet again and continue fending for her two children. She also said that she hoped the relevant authorities would follow up the matter and help her once and for all since the vehicle that she was pushed from is still operational even after changing her life to a mystery that she wouldn’t have imagined.
