Transport paralysed following probox ban

13 January 2014, 19:58 Kimutai Langat

Kericho - Transportation has been paralyzed in many parts of Kericho County following the ban on the use of Probox vehicles for public transport.
Hundreds of travelers got stranded as the few 14-seater vehicles made a kill in Kericho town and its environs.
The traffic department in the County put a ban on the use of Probox vehicles for public service saying they are the main cause of accidents in the County due to drivers’ wrecklessness.
Area traffic boss inspector Morris Okul said that no such vehicles would be allowed to operate as a PSV.
Okul said the vehicles are supposed to carry only four passengers but the drivers have been overloading them, a situation he attributed to rising cases of accidents being reported in the area.
“We have seen the vehicles carry up to fourteen passengers. This is against the law and we shall not allow this to go on,” said Okul.
The ban did not however go well with the operators who said it was unfortunate and called for it to be lifted.
They vowed to oppose it, saying they were not consulted.
They further said the ban will render them jobless considering that the sector provided thousands of jobs particularly to the youth.
In a meeting with the drivers Monday morning, the County governor Prof. Paul Chepkwony called for patience as an amicable solution is being sought over the matter
