Nairobi – A one-day strike by matatu operators which had largely been ignored, was called off on Monday afternoon after government intervention.
Matatu Welfare Association Chairman Dickson Mbugua told journalists in Nairobi that the industrial action that was planned to last ten days was called off following a two hour meeting with Prime Minister Raila Odinga who gave “assurances” that their grievances would be dealt with.
“We have called off the strike to pave way for dialogue led by a special taskforce that will look into our concerns,” he said.
