A matatu tout has earned praise across social media after returning a passenger’s lost phone on Sunday.

Kennedy James Nyaga who works for the Complaint matatus plying the Eastleigh route has been termed as a hero for his act.

According to a social media user by the name Mohammedlight Abdi, his cousin lost his phone in the matatu and when he called in a bid to trace the phone, Nyaga not only received the call but also returned the phone.

“This morning, the 10th day of February, 2019, my cousin lost his phone in the Compliant Co. Matatu KBV 534Z plying between Eastleigh and Town.

“In an effort to trace the phone, he dials his number and a voice on the other end received it who happens to be the conductor of the matatu one Kennedy James Nyaga.

“Mr Kennedy informed us that he is at Pumwani and true to his words I caught up with him at Pumwani stage near Pumwani hospital where I collected the phone from him.

“Mr Kennedy James Nyaga is a rare gem of a conductor in the matatu industry and deserve praise, respect and admiration. His action is heroic, enviable and commanding!

Such is what we should be doing in our everyday life,” stated Abdi.

In 2017, Daniel Mwaura, a conductor attached to Ganaki Sacco matatu was celebrated for returning a passenger’s Sh30,000.

Mwaura picked a wallet containing Sh30,000 and took it to the Sacco’s offices where they managed to trace the owner.
