Kenyans have expressed their anger following the government’s plane to phase out of 14-seater matatus from the Central Business District in a period of two months’ time.
Some of the passengers stated that the implementation will not be of benefit for them as some of them access such vehicles while in a hurry to get to their destinations.
Others being youths stated that their daily bread comes from the vehicles therefore the implementation will leave them jobless.
Mechanics also expressed their views stating that they usually earn good income everyday through the 14-seater vehicles compared to buses.
Others stated that the buses usually take a long time to acquire passengers compared to the 14-seaters and gave an instance of an expectant woman or a sick person waiting for a bus to arrive at a respective stage or to alight from the stage.
