Nairobi county governor honourable Johnson Sakaja has revealed his latest plan with Matatu operators. This comes after he met with Nairobi matatu operators at City Hall. During the meeting, he said that students in Nairobi wearing uniform should be offered free transport. That this will help to boost them as they seek to quench their thirst in education.
Moreover, Matatus carrying excess passengers will be excused from arrest because they will be carrying students. As The Nation reports, Sakaja said that he will initiate talks with traffic police to ensure students and matatus are not arrested for carrying excess passengers.
Sakaja's sentiments comes amidst reports of many accidents because of reckless driving. Moreover, excess passengers are a threat on the road. He also made headlines yesterday after revealing his plans to import grown trees from Malaysia. Many people took to social media to say that his priorities are misplaced and he should plan himself well.
Do you support governor Sakaja's idea of excusing Matatus with excess passengers? Feel free to share your views on the same.
