Public Service Vehicle conductors will also be required to wear uniform and prominently display their photos as prescribed by the law.
“Therefore, effective Monday ,12 November 2018,any PSV vehicle, drivers, SACCOs/Transport companies, passengers and other relevant parties that fail to comply with the provisions of the NTSA Act and the Traffic Act will be firmly dealt with the law” read part of the statement.
The statement follows the increase in accidents involving PSVs across the country with the recent one in Kericho where more than 50 lives were lost.
The two Cabinet Secretaries have stated that the accidents are as a result of failing to follow laws governing traffic management.
