Road Accident

NTSA Takes Stern Action Against Driver and Two Conductors Seen Hanging Precariously From Matatu

A few days ago, Kenyans were shocked when a video surfaced of two conductors who were hanging dangerously from a Matatu on a Nairobi Route that was not yet clear at the time.

There was uproar on social media given the situation on the Kenyan roads that has left many people dead since the start of the year.

The National Transport and Safety Authority recently published statistics showing that over 3300 Kenyans had lost their lives since the start of the year on the Kenyan roads.

The accidents have been blamed on recklessness as well as non compliance to traffic rules on the part of most motorists on the roads.

This afternoon, according to the available reliable reports that we have with us from the Official Social Media Handle of the National Transport and Safety Authority, the two conductors have been taken into custody.

The driver of the matatu has also been arrested as per the reports that we have with us from the National Transport and Safety Authority this afternoon.

Here is the statement from NTSA, "The driver as well as the two conductors of the matatu have been arrested. They will be charged accordingly in a court of law. We urge all road users to remain vigilant and speak out against such reckless behavior."
