The county administration in Nairobi has said that all PSVs be removed from the city's CBD.
The county government announced the decision in a gazette notice issued by the office of the acting county secretary following a meeting with matatu drivers, owners, and county officials.
At the end of the conference, it was decided that no longer would bus and taxis from the regions of Nyanza, Western, North Rift, South Rift, and Central Rift serve the Nairobi Central Business District for passenger pickup and drop-off.
Following President William Ruto's support for the Nairobi County Government's plan to reduce noise pollution from nightclubs the day before, this action was enacted on the same day.
On Monday, at the launching of the Twiga Food distribution center in Tatu City Special Economic Zone, the President gave Governor Sakaja his word that he would have the government's full backing.
The President has asked the governor to take precautions to shield youngsters from noise.
