Matatu owners not ready for new traffic laws, seek postponement

31 March 2014, 13:33 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Matatu owners are seeking to delay the implementation of the new traffic laws by seeking a court order stopping their enforcement by the government which is set for April 1, 2014.

They have placed their petition at the High Court, stating that they are not ready to adhere to the new laws.

Under the umbrella of the Matatu Welfare Association MWA, the matatu's are looking to have the dates moved citing lack of adequate time to install the digital speed governors which are a requirement under the new law.

Some have stated the lack of adequate time, the cost factor and the unavailability of the gadgets as some of the reasons why they want the dates moved.

" Having the new laws take effect as planned will cause irreparable damage to PSV operators who will be forced to ground their vehicles, hindering the public as well as the owners themselves who have loans to pay, the petition said.

The ruling is expected to be made today as it has been certified as urgent.

The move comes just a few days after the government insisted that there would be no extension to the deadline and that matatu's will have to make do with the new regulations.

" We cannot move and move and move. We are protecting the lives of Kenyans and we will not compromise on this matter at all, transport cabinet secretary Michael Kamau said.
