Nominations close in 2 days time, as Kenyans vote for their best matatus

Nganya Awards is an annual event seeking to award the best PSV's and personnel in the public transport industry. It involves public nominating and voting for their favorite PSV's.

 

Grip ventures Kenya Ltd in collaboration with various stakeholders in the PSV industry included have organized the third edition of the Nganya Awards to go down on the 3rd of December 2016, at KICC Courtyard.

Matatus fill the streets of Nairobi, with blaring music, admirable graffiti-style artwork and rowdiness as they weave through traffic. We may complain everyday about matatus, but we must give credit where it is due -matatu’s in Nairobi are pimped! According to a recent CNN article that featured Kenyan matatus, customization of a new vehicle can cost upwards of $20,000 that’s Ksh 2,032,840.

Rumors have it that the presently nominated matatus are said to invest up to 20million Kenya Shilling to win the Kenya number 1 Grand Entry position.

The initiative is a twofold event: entailing a motor show, which showcases unique Kenyan Matatu culture while promoting road safety on Kenya roads, and an award ceremony that entails the public selected PSVs to be awarded.

The public nomination is through Pollbrand. The nominated categories will then be guided to the voting entry by the organizers through compliance to traffic rules, comfort, services and road safety.
