Mike Sonko: I have noted with deep concern the plight of Nairobi residents as a result of the ban and the full implementation of this directive is therefore suspended.
The governor has further apologized on behalf of his government to Nairobians for the inconvenience caused by the directive to decongest the city.
Although the directive is well intentioned, many innocent commuters, including senior citizens and those with health challenges requiring emergency medical attention, expectant mothers and children traveling with their parents, all suffered untold inconvenience, and this is regrettable.
It also became clear that it is necessary to have contingent measures before enforcement of such key decisions.
I have met this morning with the affected PSV operators with a view to agreeing an acceptable solution that has less negative implication on all affected. During the coming days, I will continue to hold discussions with affected parties to find a way forward.
