Uhuru limits planned ban on 14-seater matatus

What you need to know:

  • Matatu associations and savings and credit cooperatives have been pushing for the lifting of the ban on registration of 14-seaters.
  • The President was speaking at the Matatu Owners Association National Delegates Council meeting. The event saw the launch of the MY 1963 pre-paid card, one of several cashless payment systems to be used on PSVs in the country.
  • The ban was proposed as a traffic decongestion measure following the failure of several unpopular attempts to bar low-capacity matatus from entering the Nairobi Central Business District.

President Uhuru Kenyatta has reined in his Government’s plans to ban the use of 14-seater vans in the country’s public transport sector.
