The ban was part of an array of extreme measures to reduce overspeeding on the multi-billion road.
The government has banned matatus and all Public Service Vehicles (PSV) carrying more than seven passengers in a response to a series of accidents along the road.
Transport Cabinet Secretary (CS) James Macharia stated on Wednesday, July 6 that the ban was part of an array of extreme measures to reduce overspeeding on the multi-billion road.
The directive will however be on a temporary basis pending proper measures, some of whom have already been put in place by the operator.
On top of introducing traffic officers at various points to enforce regulations such as speed limits along the highway, the government also vowed tough punishments on those who flout the rules.
