Police, Stakeholders To Restore Order

NCD/Central Commander, Anthony Wagambie Jnr said Police must operate in partnership with stakeholders and local communities.  

“I have given instruction to NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Gideon Ikumu and 4-mile Traffic Unit to organize a meeting between Road Traffic Authority (RTA), Motor Vehicle Insurance Limited (MVIL), NCDC and Police to unite as a group to address the problems that we are facing with public moto vehicles in the city.

ACP Wagambie said unworthy vehicles on the streets are causing traffic congestion and are not adhering to traffic rules.

​Authority responds to commuters’ concerns

PMV buses will now be issued temporary permits on a regular basis if their buses are to be used during the election period by candidates.

This action has been taken to limit the number of buses hired by candidates during the election period, resulting in transportation issues for the general public.

Road Traffic Authority CEO, Nelson Terema, said there have been recent accidents that could have been avoided if drivers had only followed traffic rules.

Public transport system to be improved

This follows the first-ever Gender and Transport Seminar facilitated by UN Women, where participants from donor and civil society organisations, academics and government authorities, identified specific service gaps in the current public transport system.

Some shortfalls included unsafe public spaces at bus stops and on buses for women and girls, lack of accessibility for people living with disabilities, poor enforcement to regulate bus tariffs and a need of a transport regulatory framework.
