Matatu Makangas Secretly Meeting To Sabotage BRT Project

According to sources, clandestine meetings by Nairobi matatu makangas have happened for some time now. Their main plan is to sabotage the launch of the Rapid Bus Transport system(BRT) that is set to launch soon courtesy of the ministry of transport.

In their view, the BRT buses will lead to massive loss of jobs in the sector and they will have nothing else to so.

The makangas enjoy a comfortable monopoly which allows them to alter matatu fares as they wish. Fares usually change depending on season, weather conditions or time of the day.

They have been meeting twice a week and have said that matatu owners really do not care about their rights.

As at now, there is no official union that represents touts. Most of the strikes and go slows are organized by the matatu owners themselves.

However, they have organized themselves into groups and matatu touts chairman John Adan said that because the owners are silent on the issue it possibly means they are in cahoots with the government.

They have now agreed to frustrate the efforts of the BRT launch and make life difficult for its implementation. After repeated efforts for their rights, they agree that owners of the vehicles just want money and are not interested in the welfare of drivers, makangas or other staff.

On average, a matatu has three employees. It has the makanga, the driver and a manager.

Designed to unlock the traffic mess in Nairobi, the BRT is set to ease transport and make business and travel in and out of the city very easy.
