Starting 3 December, matatus will no longer be allowed into the Nairobi city centre.
This comes after City Hall published a notice designating 11 pick and drop off termini for matatus.
“The operators are required to take note that the above changes take effect as from December 3, 2018 and all previous gazette notices/letter allocating any other place as picking and dropping areas within CBD are hereby revoked and become null and void as from December 3, 2018,” read the notice signed by acting County Secretary Pauline Kahiga.
