Sonko apologises, but says matatu CBD ban to stay
Nairobi Governor Mike Sonko has apologised to commuters for the pain caused by his CBD matatu ban.
Governor Sonko has told Senate’s Public Accounts and Investment Committee that the ban is not meant to punish residents but to bring order in the city.
“It is a good thing,” he said on Monday, “but as you know all good things are painful. The aim is not to punish the same people who voted for us.”
He said his administration has invested heavily in the construction of termini in Ngara and Muthurwa which are now ready for use.
“It is a matter of time and things will improve,” he said, while pleading for support from Parliament to ensure the ban succeds.
