Matatu operators have issued a new strike notice on Tuesday, October 27, just a day after calling off their strike following a meeting with government ministries.

The Matatu Operators Association has called for a new strike come on Tuesday, November 3 if the government fails to address their concerns raised.

One concern of matatu owners is the 60% capacity directives that they want to be scrapped claiming it has negatively affected their businesses.

The Chairperson of the Matatu and Bodaboda Operators Federation, Kushian Muchiri revealed that the matatus have issued a seven-day ultimatum to the government.

 They are giving the government up to Tuesday to decide whether rail or air should carry 60% or matatus will carry 100% full capacity.

“We called off the strike yesterday after consultations with the Interior Ministry and Transport and said this week we will have a meeting to sort out issues we are having,” he noted.
