"I will deal with you after I am done mourning my grandmother" Sonko warns these drivers

I am coming for you

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko at a past function

Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko on Thursday warned matatu drivers who used illegal stages that he will deal with them once he is back in the city from the burial of his grandmother in Mombasa County.

Sonko stated that Public Service Operators (PSV) and City Hall officials who had colluded to create unlawful bus stages will be dealt with.

“We are working hard with the national government to decongest the city centre but (some) people within my administration are selling stages to new PSV operators. This is wrong,” remarked Sonko.

The governor explained that he had received reports of shop owners who had issued complaints of illegal pick up and drop of points of passengers to be interfering with their work.

The controversial Sonko further highlighted that these stages were being created on a daily basis as a source of money for the rogue county government officers.

“Some officers in the parking and inspectorate departments are dishing out stages for money,” noted the Nairobi Governor.

City Hall Parking Services Director Tom Tinega echoed the county boss’s remarks and gave the areas affected by the menance.

The areas included: Tom Mboya Avenue, Accra Road, lanes along Haile Selassie and Moi Avenues, Latema Road, and Taveta lane.

Sonko cancels approval letters for matatu stages

In September 2018, the tough talking Nairobi governor had however cancelled all approval letters of stages to PSV operators.

Through the late Nairobi County Transport Chief Officer Richard Kavemba, Matatus had been allowed to use any terminus they preferred.

The deceased had pointed out that some matatu saccos had developed a sense of ownership to use some terminus exclusively.
