Such is the battle that Matiang’i finds himself in. He is a – Johny come late – fire fighter who is likely to be a casualty. The rot began a long time ago. Prof. Some is quoted to have declared that, “Moi University is a public asset and not a tribe’s private property.” The now Commission for Higher Education boss had had enough of chants of ‘our university’. I hope he is now watching everything on the sidelines, sipping hot coffee in a seventh floor office, smiling at the telly as the breaking news pour in from Kesses.
Fellow matatu operators who still operate from the legal terminus are counting loses as passengers have followed the roadside bus/matatus stages.
The most affected routes include the Western Kenya/KPA/Huruma stage which the matatus have resorted to pick and drop their passengers along Uganda Road as far as Petre Shah and Kogo Plaza buildings. Matatus plying the Pioneer – Langas – Kapsabet route have also abandoned their Sossian stage to pack along the road near the Sosiani river bridge. This is posing more danger to other road users especially the private vehicle owners.
