githuraiThe return of Michuki laws has seen public transport operators rush to mechanic shops to comply with laws to avoid being arrested or paying the hefty fines

According to our investigations two Saccos in Githurai have only complied to avoid being arrested but not ensuring the safety of their passengers.

Two bus saccos in Githurai namely Unified Poa and Zamazam are using bag buckles as safety belts  for the passengers and for show in case they are stopped by the police.

Passengers using the buses say they do not have a choice but to use what has been provided to them in the buses that are reportedly charging fair prices.

The residents have said that even some of the buses that have been fitted with safety belts are either faulty or lose in a way that they cannot ensure safety of a passenger in case of an accident.

Public transport vehicles under the Michuki laws are required to have functioning safety belts for the all the passengers and passengers not using the safety belts amounts to a fine of kshs.500 with our current survey showing how the matatu operators are gambling with their passengers life.
