Luckily there have no deaths but, that matatu and bus drivers think it is business as usual days after the Migaa bus-lorry smash-up killed 36 people calls for a national reawakening on public transport and safety.

Now drivers will undergo thorough vetting, their ages and health checked before they are issued with new digital driving licences in January. Education and Acting Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr Fred Matiang'i said the new measures were to take place immediately as guided by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) and other stakeholders.
