President Uhuru Kenyatta on Tuesday issued a directive sending home the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officers.

Speaking during the burial of three AIPCA bishops killed during a nasty accident, Mr. Kenyatta admitted that road carnages had increased in the country.

He instructed NTSA officers to be withdrawn from the roads and traffic police officers to continue maintaining law and orders on the Highways instead.

"NTSA officials on the highway waende nyumbani waachie hiyo kazi police officers," he said.

NTSA has been blamed for the numerous accidents which have seen over 300 people lose their lives since December 2017.

A section of the public have called for the disbandment of the Authority with Muhoroni MP James Onyango vowing to sponsor a bill in Parliament to do so.

This comes amid NTSA order banning night travel for all long distance public service vehicles.
