Here are the reactions;
“He could have attacked you anywhere along the trip but chose to do it hapo kwako nje?? What are you not telling us?”
“We have been in this app for long and know people can do anything for clout… Remember ule wa last year new years eve mwenye alidai amevunjwa magoti na bado alikuwa amepona ready to party within a few hours.”
“If she can tell us what the disagreement was all about, it would be easy to see who was wrong. But as of now, I can’t condemn the driver without hearing his part of the story.”
