Mtito Andei PSV crackdown

Drama unfolded today morning along the Nairobi-Mombasa highway at the Mtito Andei Police station after the area Traffic Base Commander together with the NTSA team launched a crackdown to enforce the newly re-established ‘Michuki Laws’. Hundreds of Public service vehicles especially buses plying the route failed to meet the requisite threshold. At around 2 AM in the morning the parking lot at the police station was already full. Drivers of the defaulting vehicles were booked in leaving hundreds of passengers stranded. Fruitless efforts by the drivers and the area police boss to negotiate on the way forward fell on deaf ears sparking an angry uproar from the aggravated passengers. The angry passengers went ahead to block the main highway causing a huge traffic snarl up. Lucky enough, the Base Commander decided to listen to the pleas of the passengers some of whom were to report

at work and for job interviews later that morning. After fruitful negotiations, the offenders were charged and allowed to ferry the passengers to their destinations at around 5 AM. Below is the checklist that PSV operators need to comply with before putting their vehicles on the roads.
