Kindly Taxify rectify something about your drivers . We almost got kidnapped yesterday by a Driver who wanted us to pay double the price.

I requested for a cab from Kawaha West to Garden city. The driver took up my request , with a Toyota Ractis but showed up in a Nissan note. Upon asking why, he responds that they are both his cars and he chooses whichever he pleases.

Speeds on the bypass, instant brakes on bumps and about 15minutes later we are at Garden City. He parks at the road, takes out his phone, which the screen was off, unlocks the screen, switches on data and after a minute, the taxify app comes on and he cancels the trip. The trip cost 150kshs from  the app. The guy then disagrees with it and orders me to do a request of the same trip as it was.

I refuse and instead question why he switched off data but it all turns into an argument upon which he speeds off from garden city claiming he will take us back to our request point so we order another cab. I insist we go to the police but the he stops just outside Garden City's gate saying that he will show us how the app works.

I again refuse  and  insist I  know why he switched off data. An argument breaks out and he started saying I am complicating things because I don’t have money to pay.

I insisted to pay but he refuses claiming he don't want our money and that he is taking us back to our request point. I insist that we go to the police station then he drives of and takes an illegal U-turn at mountain mall then speeds off heading to the direction of kasarani after we called my friends for help.

But then stops at homeland and at that point tries to put up a scene with boda boda guys gathering. I insisted again trying to calm him down and pay him but he denies the payment. Luckily the bodaboda guys are familiar with me and my spouse so it was safer for us rather than the opposite. I was by that time so traumatised to even stand by myself .

The driver whose name as per the app is James, gets off the car and tries to convince the s crowd that we refused to pay but I had this whole incident on video. I recorded and he couldn't prove otherwise. I thank God the Boda Boda guys were there to protect us as this guy had refused us to get out of the car upon reaching out destination.

He locked the car and insisted on returning us to where he found us . Mind you it was at night about 9.00 pm . He eventually left but not before giving me threats and threatening that something bad will happen to me . I told him in the name of God I forgive you and he left . 

What if I was alone, may-be things would have turned out worse. Taxify Kindly sort out this problems. Name James. Car KCP 110D.
