High Court throws out traffic rules, summons Kamau

14 April 2014, 13:50 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The High Court has thrown out the recently implemented traffic rules by the government and ordered transport secretary Michael Kamau to appear before it to answer to litigation charges.

The traffic rules were implemented two weeks ago by the government, calling on several new stringent rules to be applied by PSV operators.

According to High Court Judge George Odunga though, the issue at hand is that the government went ahead to enforce the new rules despite the existence of pending cases in court.

" The rules are null and void considering they were implemented well in the knowledge that there are pending petitions regarding the same in courts of law, he said.

He also ordered Kamau to explain before the court why he should not personally handle the litigation costs for the petition.

The ruling will hand matatu operators and long distance travel operators a reprieve from the stringent rules.

The new rules forced public transport providers to have a new digital speed governor as well as remove carriers from the top of their vehicles as well as other stringent rules.

Matatu operators had earlier gone to court seeking the postponement of the government implementation of the new law, saying it was not done in the correct manner.
