Matatus to strike next week over NTSA ban action

27 June 2015, 16:49 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - Matatu owners will go on strike next week to protest blanket bans on their vehicles by the National Transport Safety Authority NTSA.

The Matatu Owners Association MOA said Saturday that the blanket bans by the NTSA were unfair as instead of getting rid of the bad elements, they punished even the ones who are doing well.

MOA chairperson Dickson Mbugua also demanded the removal of NTSA Director General Mr Francis Mejja, saying that his draconian methods of dealing with matatus was killing the industry.

" We will go on strike Wednesday to protest what is mismanagement b Mejja and the NTSA," he said in Nairobi Saturday.

The protest follows the suspension by the NTSA of Embassava Sacco after one of their drivers caused a fatal crash along Jogoo Road last week.

2 people died in the accident.

Mejja had defended the suspension of the 703 vehicle strong Embassava, saying that it had been determined that their drivers are reckless and most vehicles unroadworthy.

" They have the letter detailing what we want. They are not magical things we are asking for," he said.

" They had not met a number of conditions and this was discovered during investigations after the crash," he added.

The indefinite suspension of Embassava left many residents of the city's Eastlands region stranded but the NTSA says that it will not be sympathetic to Kenyans only to be blamed when accidents take place.
