Majority of Kenyans travel upcountry for Christmas

In Summary

• Proper law enforcement will keep all road users in check and prevent accidents. 

• Kenyans should also be educated on the need to resist the 'kitu kidogo' culture which makes traffic authorities overlook breakage of laws.

December is approaching and the majority of Kenyans will travel upcountry for Christmas.

It is in this connection Counties Commuter Welfare Association (Cocowa) call upon the Matatu Owners Association and boda bodas to caution their drivers, riders to drive with care and consider other road users before carelessly overtaking and speeding.

It is upon the authority to ensure that proper steps are taken to curb the road carnage. Above all, Kenyans must come to terms with the debilitating effects of the ‘kitu kidogo’ culture.
