Chaos rock Kisumu bus park over control

Touts in Kisumu engaged in a battle on Saturday over the control of the bus park resulting in serious injuries.

The touts are said to have fallen out as they scrambled for power to control the PSV vehicles forcing the police to intervene.

All sorts of crude weapons were used including stone causing a bloody scene as several were rushed to Aga Khan Hospital for treatment.

Speaking to the Standard, Kisumu Central OCPD Martha Ngetich confirmed the incident saying they are closely monitoring the situation.

Police officers were patrolling the bus park to prevent further battles as the two groups were regrouping to fight.

The cause of the problem is said to have been caused by one group that is accused of introducing many more vehicles plying the Kisumu-Nairobi route with notifying others.

Passengers caught in the battle were forced to scamper for safety before the situation calmed down thanks to the police.
