Driving schools and drivers of public service vehicles will not be required to undergo mandatory vetting after the High Court suspended a directive issued by National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
In a ruling, Justice George Odunga suspended the proposed curriculum for training and testing of drivers, pending the hearing and determination of a case filed by Okiya Omtatah.
The Judge further barred NTSA and the Ministry of Transport from disabling the E-citizen password of driving schools.
“No prejudice will be suffered if the orders are granted. I hereby temporarily suspend the curriculum pending further orders,” the judge said.
NTSA had published public notices on its website and local dailies announcing a scheduled vetting.
