Matatus commonly known in Nairobi by street name "nganya" provide relatively cheap means of transport. They help in transportation of people and essential items of trade to and from the city of Nairobi. For this reason, matatus helps in enhancing Kenya's economic growth and development.
To ensure that the lives of passengers are well taken of during transportation, the matatu drivers who work for various matatu saccos should adhere to the traffic rules and regulations as outlined by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
Though the matatu drivers are advised to be very careful while operating on Kenyan highways, some have been spotted in different parts of Nairobi city risking their lives and the lives of passengers.
According to information shared by Ma3Route, a driver who is said to be working for Nazigi Sacco plying route 44 in Nairobi was spotted yesterday carrying excess passengers with the boot of the matatu wide opened. The passengers were exposed. The report also have it that the matatu was unroadworthy.
The new move by the Nazigi Sacco matatu driver should be addressed by relevant authorities to help in restoring discipline on the highways. Traffic police, NTSA and DCI should work together in taming the driver.
