NTSA dawn operation has impounded 2 modern coast buses traveling to Mombasa. The two-45 passangers buses were nabbed at Sultan Hamud township in Makueni County leaving 90 stranded.
The vehicles were travelling from Mombasa despite an existing suspension after NTSA withdrew the company’s operating licence following a grisly accident that claimed 7 lives in the same area a week ago.
Each of the buses had 45 passengers on board when traffic police officers intercepted them at Sultan Hamud at 3:30 am, said Makueni County Police Commander Joseph Ole Napeiyan.
“The matter is pending further enforcement action,” Mr Napeiyan added.
There was confusion after the company on Tuesday announced that NTSA had lifted the ban and allowed the buses back to the road. The roads safety agency quickly denied the claims.
