Multimedia University students protest against reckless driving

27 September 2016, 17:55

Nairobi – Students from Multimedia University took to the streets in arms against the death of a classmate on Sunday.

According to The Star four people were killed and six injured when a bus overturned on Langáta Road when the driver lost control of the bus.

The students were angered by the show of recklessness forcing the NTSA to revoked more than 100 matatu licenses.

The students were also up in arms about the high commuter fees they were forced to pay.

“It is not logical for us to be charged what people use as fare from Nairobi to Nakuru yet we are commuting within Nairobi," said Simeon Maranga, Multimedia University of Kenya Students Association president.

"This is outright theft. The National Transport and Safety Authority should create some order."

A similar protest took place on Monday by the Kiserian and Ongata Rongai Residents-Association who were angered by reckless driving.

"We intend to protest the failure by national and county agencies to address growing recklessness and impunity on the part of matatu saccos and crew," chairman Fredrick Gori said in a statement.
