Kidero/ Sonko seek solution to matatu strike

05 March 2014, 12:23 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Nairobi governor Evans Kidero says a solution to the ongoing matatu strike is being sought with stakeholders.

The strike is being held in protest to the newly implemented transport fee charges in the capital city which matatu operators say are exorbitant.

They have thus refused to enter the capital city, forcing thousands of working Nairobians to walk long distances into town.

The strike is being held despite several court cases by matatu owners failing to stop the charges from being implemented by the county government.

And with Nairobians hurting from the melee caused, Kidero has come out to state the county's stand on the whole matter.

" It is regrettable that such action has been taken and Nairobians have been affected by the ongoing strike, so I would like to say that a solution is being sought to the matter, he said.

He however insisted that the charges implemented by the county government were valid and would only serve to better the life of city residents.

" We all want a better city and that is the aim of the county government. There need to be compromises taken for this to be achieved, he added.

Matatu operators have threatened to go on strike until the new charges are either revoked or reduced. The charges increased the cost of licensing and operation of public service vehicles operating within the city.

Nairobi senator Mike Sonko is also expected at City Hall in a meeting between the two parties.
