Govt Bans Matatus From The Nairobi Expressway

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.
