CAR and General has accused the Mombasa county government of going against an agreement they had over stages for Tuk tuk. The county government on Friday demolished three tuk tuk stages within the CBD.

The company, in conjunction with Mombasa Tuk Tuk Association protested the move to demolish the terminals saying it contravened an earlier agreement. Speaking in Mombasa on Friday, the stakeholders led by a C&G Tuk Tuk sales agent, George Rubiri, said they were surprised to find the stages demolished without notice.

"We were given an official letter to proceed with the construction of the terminals but we were shocked to find them demolished," said Rubiri. Mombasa county transport and infrastructure executive Abbas Mohammed denied that the county government demolished the structures.
