Cabinet Secretary Ministry of Interior Fred Matiang’i has today made stops at Naivasha and Gilgil traffic police checks in an impromptu visit since the crackdown on the famous Michuki Rules began.

The CS used the opportunity to sensitize road users, including matatu operators and passengers, on the need to obey traffic rules so as to ensure road safety, according to a tweet by the Ministry of Interior Security.

Last week, National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) Director-General Francis Meja announced that undercover cops would join the operation, to ensurer that the rules were followed to the letter.

“All the agencies involved will step up surveillance, especially on major roads and blackspots, to ensure motorists adhere to safety rules. We will not relent,” said Meja.

As of last week, more than 22,000 traffic offenders had been arrested since the enforcement of Michuki rules began with millions being collected as fines from offenders.

Police data shows 3,000 culprits were arrested in Nairobi, another 6,000 in Central and 3,769, in Nyanza. 3,638 arrests were made in Western, 2,148 in Rift Valley, 3,200 at the Coast and 2,320 in Eastern.

Today, Daniel Erogon, a police officer attached to Nyayo Stadium Police Station, who was dressed in civilian arrested a vehicle that was carrying excess passengers.
