The government agency removed the bus stage to pave way for Nairobi Expressway users but the matatu operators appears to have not welcomed the idea.

According to latest reports shared by a reliable source of information via ma3route, the situation is now appearing to be under control after the government sent an elite squad unit to manage the situation.

The government has sent the dreaded General Service Unit, GSU officers at the troubled ground and the information shared reveals that Waiyaki Way in Westlands is now clearing.

The GSU officers are known to be a ruthless unit and the matatu operators appears to have read this early enough.
