Do you work within the CBD of Nairobi ? Do you have to pass through the CBD every day on your way to work? As per Mike Sonko directions, according to Kenya news.

If you’re answer to both of these questions is yes, then we have some bad news for you.  You might have to incur some extra costs like a taxi or walk all the way to the office. Why? Because PSVs are no longer allowed within the CBD. 

What Mike Sonko ban on Matatus mean?

The matatu ban took effect as early as 4 am, with police and county traffic officers blocking matatus from entering the city centre.

The armed officers, some of whom were in full combat gear, were deployed to designated stops (outside CBD) that the Sonko administration directed matatus to operate from starting today.

The traffic  officers had clubs and police with guns and batons have mounted roadblocks at the termini, including Muthurwa, Muranga Road Fig Tree A, Desai Road, Ngara Road, Hakati, Railways and Central Bus Station.

Kenya news: What next?

One of the  major concern was the capacity of the new termini outside CBD to handle the over 20,000 matatus that operate in the capital. 

Nairobi Transport executive Mohamed Dagane defended the decision, saying the termini will only act as pick-up and dropping-off points for passengers and not holding grounds for the matatus. 

Attempts to implement matatu ban in Nairobi CBD failed terribly in the past years and had to be suspended following negotiations between major stakeholders.

Will this take effect? 

Let’s wait and see.
