Kidero stops matatu parking in Nairobi CBD

29 March 2016, 22:56

Nairobi - Nairobi Governor Evans Kidero has cancelled matatu parking licences in the city centre following protests by traders.

The Standard reported that the announcement came after traders, whose businesses have been hurt by the matatus parking in front of their premises, threatened to stop paying land rates and licence fees to the county government.

The governor said he would direct the county executive responsible to immediately cancel the public service vehicles' parking permits and allocate them afresh.

Kidero was speaking during the swearing in of the new county executive member for the environment, water, sanitation and energy, Mr Peter Kimori.

According to the Daily Nation, the traders had a right not to remit payments to City Hall as their businesses were affected by the matatu operators.

“I fully support the traders not to pay taxes as the matatu operators have become undisciplined and I will first deal with the menace by removing them from the CBD,” said Kidero.
