I have an idea hear me out guys, The government should outsource Japanese or German vehicle inspectors to do thorough inspections on all buses being built locally. I guarantee you many won't pass such an inspection where there's no room for corruption. This is exactly where the problem lies. Some buses being built locally simply can't stay on the road. Kenyan vehicle inspectors are shitty, lack relevant skills and with absolutely no morals. I remember once some guy exposing corruption of a government vehicle inspector. Imagine accepting ksh 5000 bribe when you hold such a sensitive critical job where the lives of thousands of passengers depend on your competency yet you so easily release a faulty psv vehicle onto the road for meagre bribes.

I truly believe bus builders here only concentrate on the external look of the bus and never on much complex factors like stability, weight distribution, how a single kg added onto a bus in the wrong place has a negative effect on it's overall safety etc. Bring German and Japanese vehicle inspectors jameni!
It would be easier to teach Latin
I agree culture has a role to play ,huge but what did Michuki do different to disrupt this culture ?and by the way accidents reduced by over 40% during his time .... check history
Michuki used extrajudicial measures to bring sanity. Overspeed or overload and number plates zinang'olewa, and I remember there was even a hot line for reporting errant drivers with prompt action taken

Generally, trvellers wengi hiyo side prefer these fast-driven PSVs and shun those that adhere to speed limits.
From the.news one of the victim says they complained about the overloading and speeding but their cries fell on deaf ears.The victim said that from a hospital bed.I wish he knew what awaited him.
 
A way out of tampering with speed governors is simple: fleet management system.
To the best of my knowledge most long distance psv have fleet management system which is accessible by NTSA.I remember sometimes back I had a request ya ku alter overspeeding data for Nairobi - Mombasa bus after it had an accident. Nilikataa Kata Kata.
