While some of us are whining about how broke we are, some matatu owners are splashing millions to soup up their rides.
Take the case of Smasher, a mathree that plies the ukambani route (Nairobi – Makueni). The matatu was refurbished at a cost of over Sh2 million.
The matatu has left Kenyans talking, saying that it’s a game changer and a new dawn has come for matatus operating between Nairobi and Ukambani region.
It’s registered under Newlot Investment Sacco.
The matatu has cool Interior and exterior graffiti. It also has audiovisual entertainment equipment comprising of bass woofers and 3 television screens; 42″ at the front and two 22″ on the sides.
Over the years Matatus operating between Nairobi and the Ukambani region have been rendered boring and uncomfortable.
