It’s sad for some of Nairobi’s leading SACCOs after the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) withdrew their licenses. NTSA revealed that they opted to take the necessary measures after these SACCOs failed to meet requirements of operating a fleet of at least 30 vehicles.
“NTSA notifies the Public that it has suspended Nine Saccos/Companies for failing to comply with the provisions of Section 5(1) of the National Transport and Safety Authority (Operation of PSV)Regulations, 2014, which require a PSV Sacco/Company to operate a minimum of Thirty (30) serviceable motor vehicles,” said NTSA in a statement on Monday.
Among the SACCOs suspended include:
- City Tram (Nairobi CBD-Umoja route)
- Mwamba Sacco (Komarock route)
- Marvellous Travellers (Komarock route)
- MNGN Sacco (MathareNorth-Ngara-Gikomba)
- Fig Komba Sacco
- Moonlight Coach company
- Mwirona Sacco
- Huruma Mini Bus
- Transafaris (Nairobi-Nakuru-Kisumu-Busia route)
“Members of the Public are hereby advised not to board any vehicles belonging to these Saccos/Companies in order to avoid any inconveniences. The Traffic Department has been advised to impound any vehicles belonging to the nine found operating contrary to the suspension,” said NTSA.
