School Bus drivers warned against violating night travel ban

10 August 2014, 16:30 Mbungu Harrison

Nairobi - Mombasa County Commissioner Nelson Marwa has warned school bus drivers transporting students to the ongoing National music, drama festivals against violating the public transport regulation issued by the government.

Primary, secondary and higher education institutions are converging in Mombasa for this year's 88th edition of the annual Music festival set to end this week.

Addressing the press in Mombasa, Marwa warned that whoever is caught violating the regulation will be prosecuted and charged in a court of law.

This comes few days after a school bus which was headed to Mombasa for the festival was involved in a grisly road accident leaving one teacher dead and injuring 15 pupils. The Mumias based Booker Academy bus plunged into a valley in Sengwor escarpment Nandi hills on Friday.

Although tight security has been enhanced all over the Mombasa county, security chiefs have told teachers not to take advantage to over-enjoy themselves and forget to protect their students, adding that tough measures will be accorded to whoever violates the regulations

" I want to assure you we have intensified intelligence service unit in Mombasa, security is tight everywhere including critical facilities like shopping malls, the airport and the Kenya ferry services at Likoni.

" Police are everywhere, Marwa assured at Port Reitz Changamwe after visiting the family of a Mombasa child whose leg was repatriated after a stray bullet hit him in an attack.
