Accidents on rise because graft is rife in matatu sector
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.
