Passengers aboard a Busia-bound bus were on Saturday night left stranded after the vehicle stalled and the crew fled the scene.

Speaking to Citizen Digital, one of the passengers – Sellie Ondiso – said the bus, registration number KBJ 732 R from TCB Sacco, left the country bus station at around 10pm Saturday night.

According to Ms. Ondiso, the bus started experiencing mechanical difficulties immediately the journey began as it would halt at bumps and force the crew to push it over.

It however, she added, completely stopped moving when they got to University of Nairobi Kenya Science Campus on Ngong Road at about midnight.

“The bus driver and conductor then told us that they were going to bring another vehicle onto which we would be transferred so as to continue with the journey but they never came back,” said the distraught passenger.

“We tried contacting the police for help but they told us that that is not their work.”

Most of the passengers, among them four high school students expected in school by 4pm, were hence forced to spend the night in the bus.

Traffic police officers who arrived at the scene on Sunday morning told Citizen Digital the bus would be towed to Kilimani Police Station as they look for alternative means to transport the passengers.
