10 July 2012, 12:47
Minister for East Africa Community Mr. Musa Sirma has strongly condemned the high number of traffic Police in the main roads across the country, saying the number was too high compared to any other country in East African Region.
Speaking during a youth Forum at his home constituency in Eldama Ravine , the law maker said some of those road blocks on were being used as a way of extorting money from the heavy track vehicles and other public vehicles which were operating mainly along Mombasa, Malaba road.
Sirma added that the heavy track Vehicles were mostly affected by the high number of the traffic Police which he said, previously in a day they were encountering 58 road blocks which had all ready started hampering up with their business of transportation.
The legislator however said he was proud of the good work done by his Ministry in cutting down the number of traffic road blocks in the roads and precisely from Mombasa to Malaba where the number has been reduced significantly from 58 to 5 road blocks along that road.
Sirma further thank the President for his continued support in reducing the high number of road traffic.
