By Kevin Wagura 

Ethics and anti-corruption officials (EACC) will now be involved in the operation pertaining to the enforcement of Michuki rules. The EACC officers will be working undercover.

Rift Valley Traffic Commandant Zero Arome on Monday praised the NTSA, citing that the EACC officials will ensure the exercise is clean and that all those arrested will be taken to court.

Approximately 11,231 Kenyans have been arrested between Monday and Friday as police enforced a government directive for strict adherence to traffic laws thus the government has collected millions of shillings in terms of fines from various traffic offenders.

James Macharia Cabinet Secretary for transport and his Interior counterpart Fred Matiang’i insisted that the traffic rules that were introduced by the late John Michuki in 2003 will be enforced with more strictness and discipline.

Joshua Nkanatha, Nakuru county commissioner stated that he wants to see the face of the multi-agency at every roadblock. He went ahead to warn that any agency that will not be represented will answer queries on the reason behind its absence. He ended by thanking the EACC since it will ensure there is integrity on the roads.

All this was said during the World Remembrance Day for victims of road crashes celebrations at Sachang’wan
