A viral video of a passenger being kicked out of a Public Service Vehicle (PSV) is drawing mixed reactions on social media.
The undated clip captured a passenger being forced out of a matatu by a female conductor who was demanding fare. The passenger is also heard retaliating saying she had paid the undisclosed amount.
During the entire debacle, a traffic police officer was captured seemingly unbothered as he watched calmly.
Netizens seemed divided in opinions with a section calling for action on the inhumane treatment of passengers that has been on the rise.
Here is a video as shared by Twitter user @iamjoseh and the reactions therein.

This comes barely weeks after a similar incident where a 17-year-old boy was allegedly pushed to his death by a tout.
Initial reports indicated that the young man was pushed after a scuffle with the Embassava bus tout over a Ksh20 balance.
According to the reports, the incident that occurred along Outering Road on Wednesday, May 17, 2023, saw the young man die on the spot after he was run over by the same vehicle before it was torched by an irate mob.
