Thousands stranded as public service vehicles in Nairobi go on strike over the new traffic law.
Matatu operators in various parts of Nairobi have taken to the streets to protest new traffic rules that take effect on the 1st of December. Residents along Ngong road and Ongata Rongai have been left stranded.
Matatu Saccos have gone to court to block the implementation of the new traffic rules. Operators under the Drivers and Conductors, Matatu Welfare and Matatu Owners Associations however say they are not part of the ongoing strike by operators in Rongai, Kawangware and Eldoret.
