Kisumu has not been spared in the ongoing crackdown to net passenger vehicles not adhering to the rekindled ‘Michuki Rules’.

Police  mounted roadblocks at strategic spots within the city and according to a large number of matatu operators, very few of their vehicles will survive the crackdown.

They have therefore deviced their own ways to enable them escape the police drag nets targeting their sources of livelihoods.

As some are using alternative routes traversing through estates, a few others have decided to withdraw their vehicles for fear that they are impounded and charges leveled against them.

Others have also decided to avoid the highways and operate within estates without having necessarily getting to the CBD.

The crackdown has paralyzed transport within the city mainly served with the PSV matatus and tuk tuks whose operators have also decided to withdraw from the roads.

A number of matatus were netted and taken to the Central Police Station from where they were assessed to be having numerous faults.

From worn out tyres to expired insurance covers and drivers with no valid licenses.
