The National Police Service of Kenya announced that they have arrested and charged two bus conductors for various traffic violations.
The arrests come after a video of the two conductors performing acrobatic stunts hanging from a moving bus went viral.
The video shows the two men hanging from the side of the bus. One man then proceeds to raise his legs up over his head by holding onto the frame of the bus door. The second man then runs across the side of another bus passing by them at high speed.
