Daniel Mwaura, the bus conductor from Gachie who took social media by storm this week for his honesty is now counting his blessings after he returned Sh.30,000 to a passenger that was onboard his vehicle earlier on this week.

The Nairobi Hospital has gifted his wife, who is expecting their second child in June, with a free maternity package that will have options for a normal, assisted or caesarian section delivery.

At Nairobi Hospital, antenatal care usually costs Sh. 40,000 with normal delivery going for Sh. 80,000. Assisted delivery costs Sh. 100,000 with a caesarean section costing Sh. 160,000.

This offer will see Mwaura save the money he had set aside for the birth of his second child.

“I’m very excited as I had an NHIF Card and had started saving up in case we are required to top up any cash. We had however not booked for delivery at the St. Teresa Kikuyu Hospital where my wife has been attending clinics,” said Mwaura.

His wife also joined her husband in the excitement saying news of how her husband returned a customer’s money has been overwhelming.

“I am so happy that I can’t explain how much this gift means to us. I remember when I was informed by my friend that my husband was trending, I read the story and asked him how comes he returned the money when we have a baby coming. I have always known him to be an honest man but returning such a huge amount of money surprised me,” Mrs. Mwaura.

On 11th April 2018 while working as conductor of bus registration no KCC 997E (Fayal Maggy) that operates between Gachie and Nairobi, he collected a wallet loaded with sh. 30,000 that had been accidentally dropped by a customer inside the bus and made efforts to trace its customer through their Sacco management.

It’s owner,  Stanley Kaberi, later came seeking information about his lost documents and was shocked to get not only his documents, but also all his money that on the material day, he had withdrawn to clear his child’s hospital bill.

When asked what gift he wanted for his honesty, Mwaura turned down the offer and asked Kaberi to first sort out his child’s hospital bill as it was a priority.

Elsewhere, George Iregi, the Githurai 44 Matatu Driver and his conductor Richard Wachira who helped a woman passenger to deliver a baby were gifted yesterday with two 20-liters Delo oil by Caltex.

Caltex  marketing head in charge of saccos Hudson Kidaha applauded the duo saying the Delo diesel oil  will now enable them to service the matatu for the next 15 weeks.

He encouraged other matatu operators to emulate good gesture that was shown by Iregi and Wachira.
Iregi welcomed the move promising to do more and enhance humanity among his fellow matatu operators.
