Kenyans are still criticizing Governor Sakaja for allowing loud music in matatus and calling it part of our culture on Monday, November 21.
The issue that graffiti and music in matatus is terrible it is naive and backward thinking it is part of our culture. If one does not want to board a matatu with music he/she should not the governor said in a meeting with matatu operators.
While the matatu drivers appreciated Sakaja views some Kenyans seemed to take offense claiming that the leader was being populist in his remarks.
The governor statement was criticized by online users who called it terrible.
It is sad that Nairobi Governor Sakaja Johnson advocated for loud music in matatus in his comments. This nation has laws in place to regulate noise pollution. Ephraim Njenga expressed regret that the governor is encouraging illegal behavior and impunity.
Sakaja asks individuals opposed to the music to drive quietly after stating that the loudness is a part of Nairobi culture. Where will silent matatus come from now that such noise is legal? Traditions shouldn't be used as an excuse to maintain bad culture he continued.
Renson Adoyo another commentator expressed concern about children safety in light of the governor recently declared latitude.
