In his Inauguration speech on 13th September 2022, President William Ruto ordered that port operations be reverted back to the port of Mombasa from Naivasha Dry port with immediate effect.
However according to new reports, some cartels appear to be defying President William Ruto's directive while continuing with their normal businesses undeterred.
The Kenya Transporters Association (KTA) has raised alarms over power brokers it claimed opposed President William Ruto's directive to divert all cargo operations to the port of Mombasa.
KTA revealed a South Sudanese cargo that was still being ferried to Nairobi Freight Terminal (NFT) rather than transported to Mombasa for clearance in a direct violation of President's directive.
"It should be noted that the South Sudan Parliament, the business community, and the South Sudan government disowned earlier orders that had been issued by people acting outside their mandate in both governments purporting to have authorized forced use of SGR for South Sudan cargo in Transit," The Notice read in parts.
KTA insists that the order by the President was all inclusive and that the government should launch investigations into cargo companies still transporting their cargos to NFT.
