The Matatu Owners’ Association (MOA) dismissed reports of a pending nationwide strike against the fuel price increase.
This statement comes after a whatsapp message spread informing the public to be aware there would be no psv vehicles due to the national demonstration that was supposed to happen due to fuel price in the country.
However, the association’s chairperson Simon Kimutai requested members of the public to disregard social media reports warning of the disruption of public transport beginning this is after holding meeting with the stakeholders.
Kimutai faulted the government over fuel price but assured the public that the association would lobby for alternative ways to address certain challenges arising from fuel price.
