We are not going to carry anyone’s burden, this lawlessness must come to a stop, Interior CS Fred Matiang’i has said.
Speaking in Kabete on Friday, Matiang’i said the government will go after a chain of people to stamp out carelessness on the roads.
“We have taken a longer route this time. We will institutionalise our response to address this insanity. We will focus on the whole chain of responsibility,” he said.
This was after DPP Noordin Haji asked Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet to investigate the insurance company that covered the bus that killed 58 people at Fort Ternan on October 10.
“We will go after wayward insurance companies, even if it means taking away their licenses,” Matiang’i said.
The CS said the government is dealing with individuals who have decided to take the law into their hands.
“Don’t have mercy on these vehicles. Passengers who board overloaded vehicles should be arrested,” he said.
“I am very serious about this… let us go back to order… I’m asking my colleagues, especially senior officials…this is work that we have to do together.”
Orengo said the public transport has grown into a monster that has to be tamed before it gets too late.
“..if we don’t take decisions to take ourselves back to order, then we will lose our society. We must change. We can’t live this way,” he said.
