The government has given public transport stakeholders two weeks to comply with the Michuki rules failure to which they face the law.

In a statement to newsrooms, Cabinet Secretaries James Macharia and Dr. Fred Mating’i say lack of observance of the laws governing traffic management has attributed to the high road of accidents.
