President Uhuru has today (Tuesday) directed that all National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) officers be withdrawn from Kenyan roads.
The President said that traffic police officers should take over duties on Kenyan highways.
This directive comes after several leaders called for disbanding or restructuring of the safety body.
The president was speaking Tuesday in Meru during the burial of three bishops who died in a grisly crash along the Embu-Nairobi highway on December 29, 2017.
The funeral service of bishops Philip Kubai, Stanley Karuru and Moses Ntoeruri was held at Maili Tatu grounds in Igembe Central.
