A driver and tout of a bus plying the Githurai-Nairobi route have been arrested and are set to be charged with murder.
Naphtali Fondo and Alex Gikonyo, the DCI has said, are in custody after pushing to death Gerald Kimondo.
According to preliminary reports, the bus Registration number KCC 021A was last year involved in a similar incident.
