Gang Of 4 Men Attack Uber Taxi Driver And Set His Car Ablaze At Kirichwa Road

CLICK HERE TO READ FULL ARTICLE: Police in Nairobi are investigating a case in which a gang of four men attacked a Uber Taxi driver on Kirichwa Road and set his car ablaze.

The taxi business rivalry in Nairobi is rapidly escalating following last night's incident whereby a gang of four men attacked a Uber taxi driver beat him almost to death and went ahead to torch his car outside Muringa court along Kirichwa road. According to news outlets, the police are investigating the case and the four men are wanted for questioning. While addressing the media, Nairobi County Commander Japheth Koome warned against destruction of both private and government property, harassment, and causing harm to other taxi drivers, adding that legal action would be taken against those found blameworthy.

Reliable sources claim that the attacked driver was quickly rushed to Kenyatta National Hospital for treatment while his car was towed to the Kilimani Police Station. Apparently, the attack was carried out after it was gathered that the taxi driver was dropping a passenger on Kirichwa Road in Nairobi’s Kilimani Area. Uber taxi service still faces opposition from the traditional taxi operators.

Early February, 2 people were arrested for allegedly attacking a taxi operator in Nairobi with the Interior Ministry launching investigations into attacks targeting drivers affiliated to the Uber Taxi company. The police claim that a gang smashed the rear window of an Uber Taxi in Nairobi’s Kileleshwa area in an incident similar to several others reported in recent weeks.

In a statement, the Interior Ministry “sent a strong word of caution to those behind the attacks saying it would ensure those behind the attacks face the full wrath of the law.” The Ministry said business rivalry should not be settled through attacks by criminal gangs. The Kenya Association of Taxi and Cabs had raised concerns over the entry of Uber taxi, which using a mobile app, are offering fares less than half the price charged by conventional taxis, a situation that has not settled in well with traditional taxi operators.

Cab drivers then threatened to paralyze transport in the country, as they protested their saying it was robbing them of business opportunities.
