Big Blow To This Matatu Sacco In Nairobi As Governor Sakaja Kicked Them Out Of Nairobi CBD

Beginning on December 1, 2022, Matatus Saccos operating the Western, Nyanza and Rift Valley routes will pick up and drop off passengers at the Green Park Terminus.

On Friday, November 18, 2022 at Charter Hall the county government led by governor Johnson Sakaja met with Saccos and other transportation stakeholders and came to a decision.

The new regulations which were approved and signed by Jairus Musumba the acting Nairobi county secretary were released by the county government on November 28.

In the first phase the notice stated All PSV SACCOs and PSV companies offering services between Nyanza, Western, North, South and Central Rift who are currently operating from Nairobi Central Business District (CBD) will be relocated to the Green Park Terminus.

Musumba pointed out that the change was made as part of the City County effort to restructure the public service vehicle industry for matatus traveling upcountry routes.

On Sunday, November 20 Sakaja organized a special team to improve the transportation infrastructure in Nairobi County.

His major aim was to solve the Matatus problem in the CBD which plagued his predecessors. Sakaja promised to make the Central Business District PSVs new home.

Prior attempts to ban matatus from the CBD to reduce traffic by Nairobi Metropolitan Services (NMS) Chairman General Mohammed Badi also fell flat.
