New transport laws to come in force April

21 February 2014, 12:42 Wilshere

Nakuru - National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has urged stakeholders in the transport sector to ensure they have complied with the new transport guidelines as stipulated in the legal notice number 219 of 2013.

Speaking during a sensitization workshop for transporters in Nakuru town on Thursday, NTSA licensing officer, Stephen Musau said that the authority will not extend the grace period adding that they will enforce the law on April 1.

“All stakeholders in the sector must comply with the new transport guideline as stipulated in the legal notice before March 31,” said Musau.

Musau said that among the requirements in the new law is vetting of all Saccos and transport companies to ensure that they are compliant with the new law.

The law which seeks to regulate among others tour vehicles, long distance vehicles and school buses has set 30 as the minimum number of vehicles to be incorporated in one Sacco or transport company.

“Our main mandate will be to make sure that we vet all Saccos in the country,”  he said.

The officer noted that a number of transporters have started complying with the new law although the number is far much below the projected figure.

The chairman of Central Rift PSV transporters Sacco, Stephen Muli welcomed the new law saying that players in the transport sector should look into the positive side of it.

He said that due to the law on issuance of driving licenses according to academic qualification and age, they will have no choice but lay off those who do not qualify.

Muli called on those who have not complied to do so in order to avoid the last minute rush.
