Matatu Owners Association (MOA) wants repeat presidential election to go ahead on October 17 so that businesses can return to normal.
MOA Chairperson Simon Kimutai said a return to campaigns and election following the recent Supreme Court ruling is creating uncertainty that is hurting businesses.
“If IEBC has said October 17 is the Election Day we as a business community stand with them. The commission should go ahead and hold the election. We want to do away with elections so that this country can go back to normalcy because we in the transport sector are suffering as well as other businesses,” he said.
He said the daily revenue collected from the transport sector had declined by 25 per cent adding that it will be critical to have the fresh poll held as soon as possible to allow businesses to return to normal.
The association once again backed the re-election of President Uhuru Kenyatta and promised to provide free transport for the elderly and the disabled on polling day.
