NTSA officers back on the roads as RUTO’s CS KIPCHUMBA MURKOMEN reverses UHURU’s order following increased accidents


Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - Transport Cabinet Secretary Kipchumba Murkomen has announced a policy reversing former President Uhuru Kenyatta's directive ordering National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officers off the road.

In a statement, the CS revealed that the decision was made after deliberations with Interior Cabinet Secretary Kithure Kindiki. 

"Having consulted with my Interior and National Coordination colleague, Prof. Kithure Kindiki, we are going to establish a mechanism where the previous directive to remove NTSA from enforcement will be vacated and a collaborative regime between NTSA and NPS will be put in place for a more efficient enforcement," read part of the statement.

Murkomen revealed that the NTSA officers will now collaborate with the traffic police, effectively moving away from the order issued by Uhuru back in 2018.

This was among the directives issued by the CS after a grisly accident occurred along the Nairobi-Mombasa Highway on Monday involving a Kenyatta University bus and a trailer.

This accident resulted in the demise of 11 students while 20 people sustained severe injuries.

On the same day, five other people lost their lives in another accident in Bomet County.

  1. Imbecile pimp!

    All the road accidents are a result of un-road-worthy bumps on our roads.

    This is the foolishness that come with imbecile fraudster heading department across the land.

    You NTSA & NPS official should stay in their offices doing their work and not on our road searching for bribes.

    Let the imbecile traffic police do their work by telling them to make sure all lorries have working night reflectors and and working signal lights.

    Before you effect this primitive directive, fast remove all pumps of our roads - they are the leading causes of road accident my primitive CS.

    Shenzi sana!
