Matatus along Ngong Road went on strike over the entry of Super Metro Sacco matatus.

According to those using the busy route, Super Metro Sacco matatus began transporting passengers along the said route on Monday.

The matatus normally operate in Nairobi and Kiambu.

Operators of the Nairobi-Ngong route said the new competitor commenced operations without other SACCOs around being notified of the new changes.

Ngong matatu operators chairman Steve Biko said that Super Metro has not engaged and employed locals and has lowered fares from Sh100 to Sh80.

“We are not opposed to having Super Metro SACCO operate the Ngong route but they must follow the due process. If that is not done then they will not operate here,” Biko said.
