Kenya: Commuters Stranded in Nairobi

Commuters in Nairobi have been forced to walk to work as matatu operators keep off the roads to protest the recently effected Traffic laws. Police say they have received reports that Ngong , Ongata Rongai, Komarocks, Kayole, Umoja, Kikuyu, Utawala, Embakasi, Dagoretti , Muranga , Juja/Thika, Banana, Nyeri and nearby routes are some of the most affected.

Police are also looking for leaders of some of the matatu routes who are allegedly planning to attack those who have defied the call to strike. The matatu strike started last week affecting operations on most routes in the country.
