09 December 2011, 06:50
Nairobi – The Matatu Owners Association (MOA) has
declared that it will not participate in the strike organised by the
umbrella trade unions body COTU and the Matatu Welfare Association
scheduled for December 19.
MOA Chairman Simon Kimutai has said that it is the season for the
investors in the industry to make money and that the strike will not be
beneficial for them.
Kimutai said: “We do not want to go into the old ways of solving
problems by subjecting Kenyans to pain and suffering. MOA will not take
part in the strike. MOA will not be driven by the excitement of
unionists who do not know how the matatu industry operates.”
