Not many people know the name Osman….
But mention Modern Coast Bus Company and that changes.
Osman is the man who was managing the Modern Coast Bus Company fleet of buses after he was appointed by the C.E.O. Mr. Shahid Butt….
It is said the two fellas have had a long standing friendship over the years, but seemingly something drastic took place towards the end of 2011 as that friendship is no more, Mombasa411.org is informed.
Sources intimate to Mombasa411.org that Osman resigned after their relationship with Shahid reached breaking point.
Some may ask how will this affect Modern Coast?
Simple. Sources tell Mombasa411.org that Osman was the main man at MC. He was the fixer and he was involved in designing the buses, choosing the routes and very many other aspects of the business.
It is said too that several staff have already resigned from Modern Coast, among them mechanics, some drivers and other auxilliary staff.
They have all joined Osman’s new Bus Company……………..Spanish Coach which is set to start operations soon.
In the meantime, Osman is said to have bought 4 buses built to the exact specifications of Modern Coast……..something that will definitely irk Modern Coast owner Shahid.
So look out for a new bus war, between Modern Coast and Spanish Coash.
The most memorable war of buses here in Mombasa was between Modern Coast and Mash bus owned by a certain guy, nicknamed ‘Jitu’. At one time, a modern Coast bus was written at the back: “I Hate MASHed Potatoes” In reference to MASH Bus….,
Then recently another Modern Coast Bus was nicknamed “Elephant Eater” in reference to MASH’s trading symbol of an elephant.
MASH countered this by writing on one of their buses: “NI UTOTO, AKIKUA ATAACHA” Referencing to the ‘childish’ ways of Modern Coast.
Modern Coast Bus Countered with another big banner: “JITU ZIMA OVYOOO” was this a reference to Mash Bus’ owner, Jitu?
Now that the man behind all that has quit MCBC and launched Spanish Bus, will the war be between MCBC and Spanish???
Watch this space.
