Why Nairobi County plans to clamp, impound their own vehicles
The Nairobi County Government has said that their county vehicles that will flout its by-laws will be impounded as part of efforts to maintain order.
County Secretary Robert Ayisi, while speaking during a press conference on Thursday, said that no one is above the law and decisive action will be taken against anyone breaking the law regardless of their position or status.
This comes only days after county vehicles, which are notorious for double parking in the CBD, were clamped within the city center.
“The rule governing transport operations and parking is one, be it a county vehicle or a county employee’s vehicle found wrongfully parked, double parked or parked in the wrong place, clamping will be done,” Ayisi said.
“Even the Governor normally says if you find my driver parked in the wrong place, clamp him, give him a fine and he will be surcharged,” he added.
