NTSA revokes licence of Imara Daima vehicles after fatal accident

25 March 2016, 10:27 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Residents of Imara Daima Estate in Nairobi will have to brace for tough times after the country's safety authority withdrew the licenses of the main public service vehicles that serve the area.

National Transport and  Safety Authority (NTSA) on Wednesday announced the revocation of operating licenses for Indimanje Sacco Matatus, after one of them caused the death of over 10 people on Monday night.

At least 17 people were killed when the 32-seater bus belonging to the Sacco rolled at near The Standard media group main offices on Mombasa Road, as the driver attempted to overtake another vehicle.

"NTSA has received reports of fatal traffic crashes caused by public service vehicles belonging to Indimanje Sacco, Tahoe Sheikh Said (TSS) transporters Limited and Rengcom Communications Limited," read the statement in part.

"Reports from our vehicle inspection unit indicates that the accidents were caused by failure of the operator's to comply with provisions of licenses issued to them. We have therefore decided to suspend their licenses with immediate effect," added NTSA.

The authority explained that the suspension will be only lifted once the operators show evidence of complying with the licensing requirements.

"Members of the public are are advised not to board vehicle's belonging to the operators until the suspension is lifted. The traffic department is requested to implement this decision."
