Embassava suspension hurts Eastlands residents

25 June 2015, 11:44 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The National Transport Safety Authority NTSA has suspended the highly popular Embassava transport sacco, leaving many Nairobi Eastlands residents stranded.

The sacco was suspended Wednesday evening by the NTSA after an accident last week caused the death of two people along Jogoo Road.

The accident took place after two matatus one from the Embassava Sacco and the other from Forward Travellers Sacco collided.

The NTSA after investigations, found out that the accident was caused by human error and that the Embassava vehicle was to blame for the melee that took place, NTSA CEO Francis Mejja said.

" We met all concerned parties and agreed Embassava was to blame in the case. They have almost two weeks to correct several issues that came up in the process," he said. Preliminary inspection has established some buses of the company are not roadworthy and need to be re-inspected," he added.

The move left many passengers on the busy Jogoo road route stranded, with others having to pay extra fares to make it to their places of work.

" It is a big problem and we are stuck here but the government has done something that is needed to save lives of innocent Kenyans," Alfred Kimeu, a resident of Pipeline Embakassi said.

Others felt that the NTSA should have cut out those vehicles that were not roadworthy and left others which were to operate as normal.

" I think that the government should have removed those vehicles that were not in good shape and not just blanket everyone, which in my view is unfair," Loise Ndegwa from Tena estate complained.

The NTSA though, says that it will not joke with the lives of Kenyans.

" We are here to save lives and not a small delay for the majority of law abiding Kenyans will change that," Mejja insisted.
