Relief as Imara Daima matatus resume work

06 April 2016, 14:48 Arap Yego

Nairobi - Residents of Imara Daima and other adjacent estates can now sigh with relief after Public Service Vehicles (PSVs) serving the area resumed operations.

Two weeks ago, the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) revoked the operating license for all PSVs under Indimanje Sacco which serve Imara Daima and Mukuru kwa Njenga areas in the outskirts of Nairobi after one of them caused a fatal accident on Mombasa Road.

At least 17 passengers were killed when the 32-seater bus belonging to the sacco rolled near The Standard media group main offices, prompting the safety Authority to act.

Speaking to News24 Wednesday, NTSA Deputy Director of Communications Dominic Kabiru said the Authority has lifted the suspension of the Sacco after the organization met the conditions.

"We are satisfied that the Sacco has met the preconditions we set for them. All their vehicles have been taken for re-inspection and their drivers and conductors have been taken through a road safety and customer service sensitization program, "explained Kabiru.

He warned operators of other PSV Matatu Saccos that the authority won't hesitate resorting to punitive disciplinary measures if their vehicles are involved traffic offenses.

"The sole purposes of having PSV Saccos were to empower them to self-regulate their operations and thus we urge the Saccos to take charge and responsibility of their crew. They should adhere to the set PSV regulations,” he said.

Indimanje Sacco Secretary General Evans Meja lauded NTSA’s move to let the over 200 PSVs under the sacco to resume operations noting that they have learnt the lesson.

“Some of our members were servicing loans for their vehicles. Our drivers and matatu crew suffered during the suspension. We are happy we are back on the road,”  said Meja, who assured commuters that their safety is guaranteed as their vehicles have met all the safety requirements.
