Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has
made good his threat to ban Matatus and all Public Service Vehicles from
entering the CBD.

Kenyans were stranded on Monday morning after
they were dropped off at the new designated stages and forced to walk to the
CBD.

Nairobi County Secretary, Pauline Kahiga,
has explained the new stages to make it easier for commuters.

The following are the new stages for the
PSV vehicles:

The terminus will be used by all Matatu and
buses that ply the Jogoo Road and Lusaka Road route.

This stage will be used by vehicles that
use the Juja Road route together with Ring Road and Park road.

3. Desai Service Road Stage

The Desai stage will be used by vehicles
that go past Ruiru or branch off before or at Kenol.

Public commuter vehicles that use the Thika
Road route which include the Ruiru and Kiambu Road route will drop and pick
passengers at this stage.

5. Fig tree Terminus A (Murang’a Road)

The terminus will be used by matatus that
access the CBD using the Waiyaki Way/ Uhuru Highway, Kipande Road and Limuru
Road.

Passengers heading towards past Kenol along
the Meru/Nyeri-Nairobi highway will use this stage which also will be used by
all upcountry vehicles coming into the city through Waiyaki Way.

Vehicles that use the Mombasa and Lang’ata
Road routes will drop and pick passengers at this stage.

The stage will be used by all vehicles that
use the Ngong Road route.

Meanwhile, Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has
apologised to commuters affected by the ban on Matatus entering CBD but
insisted that there is no turning back.

While appearing before the Senate’s Public Accounts and Investment
Committee, Sonko said the ban is not meant to punish residents but bring order
in the city.
