A matatu driver was on Wednesday forced to stop mid-journey to help a woman passenger who had collapsed on their trip from Nakuru to Nairobi.
The lady, Keziah Wanja, narrated on her social media page how the driver swung into action after failing on their way to Nairobi.
Wanja sat in the front seat of the matatu when she started feeling unwell just an hour after departing Nakuru.
The driver noticed that she was uncomfortable and asked her if she was okay.
“I was so dizzy, and before I said another word, I was half conscious,” Wanja stated.
Mutua cut short his journey to Nairobi, being a frequent user of the road, he knew where the closest hospital was.
The driver rushed Wanja to Laari Level 4 hospital which was the closest.
Doctors who attended to her at the hospital found that her sugar levels had dropped, causing the dizziness which made her unconscious.
Wanja narrated that the driver was so kind that he even offered to clear her hospital bill, but she felt he had done enough.
She noted that had the driver not intervened in time. her situation could have gotten worse.
“Today I am alive because someone was selfless to help me. I am grateful” Wanja went ahead to thank Mutua.
Their journey resumed after she got stable which meant arriving in Nairobi later than earlier scheduled.
In her post, Wanja thanked the other passengers who were kind and patient as she was rushed to the hospital.
The lady has since started an online fundraising for the driver to thank him for his kindness.
