Tour Drivers Seek State Audience
24 Aug 2013

The Star; By Kiplangat Kirui

 

THE Kenya Tourists Drivers and Guides Association have sought President Uhuru Kenyattas intervention over alleged police harassment.

 

Chairman Joseph ole Parpai said the police target them on pretext of conducting crackdown on over speeding vehicles. He told the Star yesterday that police have been impounding their vehicles without any justifications.

 

Parpai said the arrests have affected tourism businesses in Maasai Mara. ‘We want to meet President Kenyatta, Tourism Cabinet Secretary Phyllis Kandie and Inspector General of Police David Kimaiyo to end this issue,’ he said. Humphrey Mureithi, a tour driver said police have been extorting money from tour firms.

 

‘The police are now using tough traffic rules introduced last year to demand huge bribes from motorists and tour drivers,’ he said. Two weeks ago, the tour drivers held demonstration in Ntulele trading centre along Narok-Mai Mahiu highway after their colleagues were arrested for allegedly over speeding.

 

He said they want their vehicles be issued with Tours Service Vehicles license (TSV) instead of the usual PSV.

 

‘At time we are forced to speed because their clients have planes to catch,’ he said.
