Before boarding a nganya, popularly known as a matatu, here are a few things you should take into consideration. First and foremost, carry small change with you always. If you want to be on the safe side with the rowdy and loud conductors. It is best you carry some loose change with you.
Do not go inside that matatu with the hopes of paying a transport fee of 30 shillings, yet you are giving out an 1000 shilling note.
My friend you will either be insulted or deducted an extra fee because you stressed the conductor out.
The second thing you should do is , know where you are going. The speed at which these nganyas fly at on these Kenyan roads, is enough to keep you worried whether you will arrive at your preferred destination or heaven, that is if things don’t go as planned.
Always be keen on where you are alighting as the matatus fly easily past your stage if you don’t inform the conductor of your alighting on time.
