Speaking exclusively to Pulse Live Kenya NTSA boss said...

Speaking to Pulse Live Kenya NTSA General Director Francis Meja disclosed that the process meant to kick off on 2 October had been rescheduled to a later date.

Meja, who explained that the implementation of the third identifier sticker was being done in three phases noted that the postponement was due to a technical hitch experienced in the first phase of the process.

The NTSA boss noted that the technical team was working to ensure that the second phase is implemented as soon as possible.

“There is a technical issue we are trying to resolve so that is what has occasioned the delay,” he said.

We encountered some small challenges in the first phase that we want to iron out before we move forward.

Mr Meja clarified that there was no deadline for all drivers to have the sticker at the same time.

“This program is faced off in three phases. The first phase started on July 1 where all new first time registered vehicles in Kenya were fitted with the equipment.

“Then from October 1 what we had anticipated to do is to start with all vehicles that had an inspection due date. The vehicles would have the sticker fitted during the inspection.

“From January next year, we are working closely with the insurance industry to facilitate the acquisition of the third identifier by private motorists while they renew their vehicles insurance,” Meja told Pulse Live Kenya.
