Cecilia Njeri Gicheha, 23 year old University of Nairobi student was squashed to death by two matatus near Tuskys Beba Beba stage in Nairobi’s CBD.
She had travelling to Limuru on Thursday to inform her family she was in the graduation list and she had landed a job at Boma Hotel. She was scheduled to report to work on Tuesday, her brother, Njenga Gicheha, said.
Her life was brutally cut short on Friday night by two selfish matatu drivers who were jostling for passengers along Moi Avenue.
According to eye witnesses, the student screamed when she was hit by the first matatu but the second one squashed her further.
A Good Samaritan who offered to take the young woman to the hospital was told to wait because the police insisted that both the matatus accompany them to the police station.
The young student was to graduate in December with a degree in hospitality that is offered at the university’s Utalii constituent college.
