Commuters stranded as Michuki rules come into effect on roads
Hundreds of commuters were stranded in various Nairobi routes on Monday after police stepped up the crackdown on non-compliant matatus.
The operation, which kicked off on Sunday, saw many operators keep off the roads in fear of arrest.
A senior traffic officer at the Buru Buru police divisional headquarters told the Star they are targetting vehicles with blaring horns, bullbars, and tinted windows.
On October 25, the government issued a directive to all PSVs to comply with all traffic laws, popularly known as Michuki rules, by November 12.
Hordes of commuters were spotted at bus stops on Thika road, Outering, Mwiki-Kasarani route, Umoja, Jogoo road, Ruaka, Rongai, Mombasa road, and Kiambu road.
