  • Matatus are banned from accessing the City Centre
  • The move is to ensure the decongestion of the city
  • Commuters will have to walk from one terminus to another to get a matatu
  • The termini are located outside town  

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko, flanked with other county officials have come out to explain why the County Government has came up with the ban on matatus from accessing the CBD.

Through a gazette notice, the Nairobi County Government is baring matatu’s from accessing the central business district as from Wednesday.

The move, according to the Governor, is to decongest the city centre and make movement around town easier.

The ban of matatu’s from Nairobi CBD has been met with a lot of criticisms from the public as they feel the move is ill and will only worsen their commuting plights.
