Car & General open official offices in voi. Promise Goodies.

Residents of Taita Taveta County can now afford a smile on their faces after the launch of a new Car and General Branch in Voi town after being in operation for the last 3 years. C&G’s Wallace appreciated the support they have received from Voi residents from their time of inception at their make shift office near Teita Distributors. Previously, Car and General operated from their Mombasa branch which served the six counties in the Coast.  The new branch opposite Hatuna Chuki break down services will be trading TVS Motorbikes, tyres, generators, tuktuks, tractors and excavators.

In an event that was attended by the Car and General MD Mr. Chesoli, Taita Taveta CEC sports and youth affair Mr. Bigvai Mwailemi, TTC Traffic Base commander, OCPD VOI and AP commandant Mr. R A Majoni, residents were urged to embrace the new opportunity and acquire motorcycles through an asset financing partnership with Watu Credit. Watu Credit, in partnership with Car and General will be offering motocycle loans to the youth and residents after paying a deposit of KSH 20,000 and pay the remaining amount in monthly instalments. Speaking at the launch Mr. Bigvai Mwailemi encouraged the youth to take the Boda boda business as an employment that can be used as a stepping stone to greater opportunities. He also challenged the youth to form SACCOS and apply for funding from the county. His department has allocated Ksh 2 million for the youth that is yet to be collected.

As part of CSR Car and General Voi branch offered to sponsor 10 riders for a driving course and build two boda boda sheds at Voi town. Mr Chesoli also promised to look into the matters raised by Mohammed Dudu, the chair of boda boda riders association Voi. Among the pressing issues included, the cost and functionality of the tracking devices installed on the motorbikes and the cost of transfer of logbooks.

The TTC security team led by OCPD Voi Mr. Chesire and the base commandant Chief Inspector Michael Muriithi cautioned the riders on flaunting traffic rules and uploading law and order. Mr. Muriithi discouraged the riders from handing out their motorbikes to third party users commonly referred to as “watu wa squad” as they have contributed to many of the accidents recorded in the county. Use of helmets and reflector jackets for both the rider and the passenger was also termed as mandatory.
