Source: UGC He had come from Mwea and was already a week late to school because he had not yet raised enough school fees for that semester. Upon arrival at his destination, the young man who had luggage and a backpack in his hand, alighted from the vehicle to pick the luggage but in the process, forgot his bag which had a laptop and KSh 20,000 meant for school fees.

Efforts to trace the matatu What would follow was frantic efforts by the student to get back his bag as his stay on the campus was heavily dependent on whether he would get the money. “He called me and told me something bad happened and at first, I thought it was an accident but he told me he had lost the bag where I had kept the school fees,” Gitau’s mother said adding she screamed in pain because she had toiled tooth and nail to get that money. The following day, they reported the matter to the police station but they were informed they could not be helped without the car’s plate number.

Honest driver The next day, they went to KST Sacco offices in Thika and they were in luck as they found the bag in their office and the laptop was inside. The matatu driver was later given a call and he confirmed that he had the money and in 20 minutes, he met up with the MKU student and returned the money. “I had the money in my pocket and I knew that when someone shows up to claim the bag, they would also ask for the money which I had kept safe,” Basilio Kimani, the driver said. Interestingly, on the day he had the KSh 20,000, he only made KSh 200 from his job but his ‘lack’ of enough money did not even tempt him to hold on to the cash. “I knew it did not belong to me and I was happy to give it back,” the driver added.
