County suspends city termini operating illegally

Matatus in Nairobi CBD
The county government has suspended matatu termini that operate illegally, as it seeks to end traffic jam in the Nairobi Central Business District (CBD).

Director of Parking Services Tom Tinega said illegal pick-up and drop-off points had been created in areas that had not been gazetted.

He said this had brought chaos and wasteful traffic jams.

“This is to inform that only gazetted drop-off points would be allowed and all non-gazetted drop-off points have been suspended with immediate effect,” he said.
