Kenya: Govt to Outline Road Safety Measures Ahead of Monday Crackdown

Nairobi — The government will on Friday announce measures it has taken to improve road safety ahead of the Monday deadline for Public Service Vehicles (PSV) to comply.

It will also outline new policies and rules to be adopted before it begins the countrywide crackdown on non-compliant PSVs and operators.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiangi together with his Transport counterpart James Macharia will be joined by the National Transport and Safety Authority during the briefing.

Early this week, police started implementing the tough traffic rules but suspended it a day later after operators protested that the enforcement may not achieve results, unless a proper framework is set out.

The rules, first introduced by former Transport Minister, the late John Michuki, had been abandoned or failed to be enforced fully, leading to increased number of road accidents that have claimed many lives across the country.
