Timamy wants cars on Lamu Island to be seized
Lamu Governor Issa Timamy has asked county commissioner Joseph Kanyiri to arrest all individuals with automobiles in Lamu old town and confiscate the vehicles. In August last year, the county government banned all automobiles, including motorcycles and bicycles, from the town, a World Heritage site. They are only allowed on the mainland. The town’s narrow streets are only for donkeys and pedestrians, he said.
