Ac­ci­dents on rise be­cause graft is rife in matatu sec­tor

The Star (Kenya) - - Voices -

The Na­tional Trans­port Safety Au­thor­ity has beenin the spot­light since an ac­ci­dent that oc­curred on Lan­gata Road that in­volved an On­gataline Sacco matatu Four peo­ple were killed and six oth­ers in­jured. De­spite the NTSA dereg­is­ter­ing the sacco, Kenyans still feel the agency should be dis­banded. Ac­ci­dents keep on in­creas­ing. How­ever, I be­lieve that this fight will only be won if Kenyans of­fer sup­port to deal with the cor­rup­tion and po­lit­i­cal in­ter­fer­ence within the trans­port sec­tor just as they did dur­ing the ten­ure of for­mer Trans­port min­is­ter John Michuki.
