No replies insulting me or anybody else please, if somebody doesn't know, educate them.

With that being said, why are custom number-plates a luxury in Kenya only open to the wealthy? You'd think that the government making customization accessible to the millions of car owners in Kenya would be the smart move. It would obviously be at a reasonable premium over the current number-plates, let's say if the current cost is Ksh 2,000 for normal plates, charge Ksh 5,000 for custom ones.
That should earn the government some extra revenue as well as giving people what they want,.
Win, win right?

I can see that, but doesn't the government have better priorities, like making money?
And you can still have levels to it, like a full name numberplate like the "Gathecha" one above can cost more, but simpler ones can cost less, e.g M0T0 KAL1 or something along those lines...
Yep, I see your point. But from a security point of view, the government would prefer a vast majority of cars on the road to have the generic easy to jot down and remember regular number plates.
