Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has requested that Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua quit provoking Nairobi Governor Johnson Sakaja over the latter's choice to forbid matatus from entering the CBD (CBD).
After the governor declared that all matatus would not be permitted to operate in the CBD at the end of November 2022, Sakaja and Gachagua became caught in a heated argument.
The Rift Valley and Western Kenya Public Service Vehicles were so instructed to operate from the Green Park Terminus.
The governor declared that in an effort to reduce congestion and manage noise pollution, his administration will gradually remove matatus from the Nairobi CBD.
On the other side, Sakaja has subsequently reprimanded Gachagua, asserting that he is not a pushover.
Since then, Nairobi Senator Edwin Sifuna has entered the discussion, accusing Gachagua of exceeding his authority in his role as vice president.
The legislator asserted that Sakaja was correct to prohibit matatus from the CBD because city residents had long called for this to occur.
The senator further asked Gachagua to avoid bringing up ethnic issues since he believed it would polarise the community.
