30 Saccos join Matatu Owners Association

01 December 2014, 19:06 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Thirty matatu Saccos from Mt Kenya region have agreed to join the Matatu Owners Association (MOA).

The Saccos joined the association in order to make it strong while lobbying for interests of matatu operators.

During a meeting in a Nyeri town hotel between the Saccos, MOA and National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officials, they resolved at forming a giant association to ensure authorities do not oppress them.

The meeting was chaired by MOA treasurer Joseph Mungai, who observed that the Saccos will get benefits including ensuring that insurance covers are paid on time and that county government charges were reasonable.

“There are many benefits for those who join the association. We are in the process of ensuring that the Matatu Owners Association and Matatu Welfare Association are one so that we can stand together in unity,” he said.

Mungai added that the association is interested in investing in petrol stations and car washing businesses.

The 30 Saccos has increased the MOA membership to 500 Saccos with 3,000 members.

During the meeting, the matatu operators also discussed about the forthcoming public participation of the Nyeri County Revenue Administration Bill where they will send a delegate.

MOA said it is ready to seek court injunction in case the Nyeri county government refuses to heed to their memorandum complaining that more unnecessary charges have been introduced.
