We are saddened since we had been told nothing prior to this. We are operating within the laws as we have complied with the traffic rules,” Mr Amwayi said yesterday. The operators were planning to hold a peaceful demonstration to the office of the OCPD and later march to the office of the governor to seek a clarification of the order. Before the nationwide crackdown seeking to enforce ‘Michuki rules’, the vehicles used to ferry at least seven passengers, but have since reduced the number to five, as required.
