Time i started queuing : 5.30am. Situation at the SGR. Tickets get bought out in 10min. As one boda boda guy buys 700 tickets yet the train capacity is 1200 seats...

They are bieng sold for ksh. 1500 in muthurwa market...

So someone will make (700 x 800 =ksh. 560,000)
On a daily basis..

In a week.. Its 3.9 million.

In a month its ksh.117,000,000 20170623_073054.jpg

and who is that teller that sells him 700 tickets? is that even possible? even ten tickets will raise alarms. With such ques he can't say he goes and comes back. Unless there is an employee doing fishy business. It is very easy with CCTV to pinpoint whoever is doing that
I don't know how they are doing it.. But they are... By 6.15am Monday train was fully booked..
For you to get a ticket, you need to be queuing by 5.am for an advance ticket.

Think it's time we also looked at this as security issue,if people have already infiltrated the ticket selling department what's to stop people with nefarious intentions from infiltrating the security department and cause chaos on the trains!

that also means around 700 passengers pass by muthurwa to get the mwitus before 9 AM to get the train.. I do not deny that there may be unscrupulous brokers, just that the number of tickets (700) is too high a number and too risky even to the seller. The exposure is too high for him and even I can get to him
