Night Travel to Resume? Matatu Operators Speak on Resumption

On Wednesday, October 20, President Uhuru Kenyatta lifted the night curfew during Mashujaa celebrations. The announcement has made matatu operators weigh in on various calls to resume night travel.

Speaking to a local media house, Matatu Owners Association chairman, Simon Kimutai, stated PSVs were in consultation over the matter and they were cautious of resuming the operations immediately.

“We appreciate our President Uhuru Kenyatta for lifting the nationwide curfew. However, we still need to be extra careful. People must sanitize still and wear masks. We don’t want to revert all the gains,” he said.

He added that they have to sensitize passengers on the availability of night buses and also plan accordingly to avoid losses on resumption day.

Traffic coordinator and MOA member, Brendan Marshall, said that resumption may happen on Thursday, October 21, upon consideration of all stakeholders. He further added that most buses work on bookings and schedules and would not be jeopardized by President's plans.
