The Matatu Owners Association has collaborated with the Judiciary to launch an M-Pesa line today.
Speaking in Meru during a meeting with the Meru Matatu Owners, the association's vice chairman Stephen Murunga said the line is will enable drivers fined for flouting traffic rules send the money to save time that would have otherwise been wasted in court proceedings.
Murunga said the line will also check corrupt police officers who have been forcing drivers to abandon passengers along highways.
He also said the association will soon launch an umbrella Sacco that will bring on board membership of smaller Saccos to help them pull their resources together to generate bigger savings and borrow loans at different times.
The MOA issued a 21-day ultimatum to the Ministry of Transport to consider their Trading License Board recommendations given six months ago over the phasing out of the fourteen-seater matatus.
