Ti­mamy wants cars on Lamu Is­land to be seized

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Coast -

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.
