Interior CS Fred Matiang'i has instructed the National Transport and Safety Authority to go after criminals cloning number plates in the country.

Dr Matiang'i gave the orders when he chaired the first meeting with NTSA officials since the president transferred the authority from the Transport Ministry to his docket.

The CS noted that investigations are ongoing and warned that any official found to have been involved in the number plate cloning syndicate would not be spared.

"Such irregularities have a ripple effect on our national security – the recent

Dusit Hotel Complex attack is a case in point,” the CS noted.

Reduce deaths caused by road accidents by 50%

CS Matiang'i also instructed the authority to ensure reduction of traffic-related deaths by 50% this year and ultimately sustain near zero deaths.

He emphasized that failure to enforce traffic laws is to blame for many tragic road accidents.

“Honest and loyal leadership is what Kenyans are demanding, and you must be

directly accountable to them by enforcing all the laws ruthlessly and applying the

standards without compromising.

“Our statistics on road accidents does not reflect the number of roadworthy

vehicles currently registered in our systems.

"These discrepancies imply that there could be several unroadworthy vehicles operating after passing our inspection tests irregularly,” the CS noted.
