It’s a pity to see how a city council askari is fiercely feared than a combat police. Yesterday a female hawker shocked many after she dashed under a matatu to evade being caught by the County Inspectorate officers who were on a regular patrol in the Central Business District (CBD)
The woman’s decision left many passersby puzzled since the risk she had put herself into by hiding under the matatu was worse than what could have happened to her if the city Inspectorate officers had got hold of her.
However she was lucky that the touts had spotted her and the driver did not move the vehicle. It took a while for the touts to convince the woman to get out of her hiding place after the ‘kanjo askaris’ were gone as she started weeping while still in hiding.
