Bungoma county government has warned crooked matatu operators that their licences will be revoked if they fail to use the Bungoma bus park.
Speaking on Tuesday during a consultative meeting with the Ministry of Trade, police and PSV operators, Housing and Urban Development CECM Douglas Sasita said licenced matatus operating outside the bus park are earmarked for revocation.
"All Matatus should operate within the bus park, those operating from outside will see their licences revoked immediately, let's restore order and beautify Bungoma town," he said.
He noted that boarding and drop-off points of passengers should be within the bus park as this will ensure that those who have paid to use the park also benefit.
Sasita also stated that all unregistered kiosks will be demolished to clean the town and clear the mess as every business person should use the designated areas.
