I arrived at the bus terminus today at 6:00am and got a matatu to Awasi at 7:10am.It left the stage at 7:20am.
I say so- because I was aboard a vehicle that had all the right documents, and we were wearing seat belts- and everyone was seated including the conductor, but this policeman just had to get money from the tout. He asked the driver to pull over, then singled out the tout by first asking him why he was not in full uniform. He then took him by the hand and they walked towards a lorry that was parked. I found this insulting to a system that is supposed to ensure road safety. I didn't know about the bribe, until later on as we were approaching Ahero junction when the conductor told the driver they can carry excess passengers because they will have to make enough money to give the "ever hungry" traffic police.
How can one change the world if one identifies oneself with everybody?
