Troubled Swvl wins hearts of Kenyans online

Kenyans have rallied behind embattled Shuttle-hailing service provider Swvl following the numerous rows the company has been having with the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) since its inception.

On Tuesday NTSA called for prosecution of the firm’s director and for the company to cease its operation in the city.

According to NTSA, the app-based public service transport operator has not been licensed either by the agency or the County Government of Nairobi to ply the routes it has been operating in.

Last year they stopped operations briefly after receiving orders from NTSA to halt their services on most routes in Nairobi.

Kenyans on Twitter were miffed by the ongoing troubles bedeviling Swvl.
