Hired buses to get govt permit before ferrying students

10 August 2015, 13:59 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) willing to ferry students to and from schools within Nyeri County will be have to be registering first with the administration before engaging in business.

Tetu Deputy County Commissioner, Herman Shambi over the weekend said the vehicles will be seeking permission from the authorities as a measure to curb immoral activities.

“The buses or other PSVs will have to obtain permission from us first because we do not want to witness a scenario like the one we saw recently,” said Shambi outside his offices in Wamagana Township.

He maintained that parents must take care of their children by advising them especially during the holidays in order to tame escalating cases of indiscipline.

Shambi made the remarks following a shocking incident where more than 40 students were nabbed romping in a Nairobi bound bus at Kaingwachi area along the Nyeri-Sagana road.

The students, who were on their way home for August holidays, were also found with tobacco, bhang and a matchbox hidden in their undergarments.

Shambi urged parents to take a leading role of moulding their children’s lives and morals.

He further claimed that women were always in the know about the happenings in their respective villages and asked them to feed police with information regarding security.

“Women know a lot about what is happening at the villages. Kindly give police any information about security and we shall keep your identity anonymous,” Shambi pleaded.
