The 2NK sacco driver who was sacked after he attempted to have students who were abusing drugs in a vehicle he was driving arrested, finally met with DCI boss George Kinoti.

John Muthoni, who has since secured a driving job with the Nyeri County Government, had been invited by Kinoti upon the receipt of news of his frustrations and intimidation following his bold move.

Muthoni's employer sacked him after the incident drawing public range. The driver was celebrated by the DCI boss for his bravery.

"Mr Kinoti celebrated his bravery, after he tried in vain to contain the intoxicated kids and drove the vehicle to a police station. He wondered how 2NK Sacco would result to such a punitive action instead of encouraging other drivers to emulate Muthoni’s good example," a statement released by the DCI after the meeting read in part.

The DCI chief also commended Muthoni for trying to dissuade the students from self destruction.

Kinoti noted that drugs and substance abuse had ruined the lives of many young men and women in the country. He further decried the increasing cases of drugs usage among students that had rendered parents and guardians helpless in trying to shape the future of their children.

The DCI director reportedly encouraged Muthoni to continue upholding the moral value of standing up for what is right, even if it meant putting his career at risk.
