Driver who Kicked Police out of Car to Rot in Jail!

A man who was caught on camera kicking out a traffic police officer out of his car along Ngong Road now faces an extended jail term and hefty fine should he be convicted of the alleged crime.

The driver of the Nissan March that has since been identified as KCT 730Q has limited options as the entire police service in the country has ordered a manhunt to arrest him.

According to Nairobi Traffic Police Commander Joshua Omukata, the driver of the white car had been involved in an accident in Karen and was on the run.

Traffic officers in Karen radioed their colleagues along Montessori school who stopped the car when the incident happened.

In the video that has since gone viral, a scuffle ensues in the car where the traffic police officer is seen battling with the driver.

Moments later, onlookers’ attention is drawn to the car, from which they manage to rescue the cop but the driver manages to speed off even with the front passenger door flung open.
