    However, they did not have enough bus fare to get them to their destination and that is when the conductor kicked them out at Sotik area at around 10 p.m. together with their belongings.

    Without any option, they opted to lay their bags on a verandah of some closed shops to rest for the night before figuring out their next move the following morning.

    At that time, Sergeant Mwaura who was on his way home from watching a football match spotted them and enquired what happened.

    They narrated their ordeal to him and that is when he bought them food at a nearby establishment.

    He further booked them a room to sleep at a guest house in the area.

    The following morning the officer passed by to check on them and paid for their breakfast and later booked and paid for their fare to complete their journey to Nyamira.
