Migori County public service vehicle operators have called upon the County government and local elected leaders to address the urgent issues of the depleted state of the Migori matatu terminal.
Migori County Operators Union chairman Mr. George Rarieda said that proper drainage systems, non-functional street lights and uncollected garbage were some of the key challenges the Migori Matatu terminal was facing.
Rarieda said that the matatu terminal had also been converted into a marketplace by local vendors especially in the evenings, hindering major transport operations. The chair also lamented that the washrooms had been converted into a privately owned enterprise yet they were built to serve the operators.
He urged the County Administration to address their concerns in the shortest time possible to restore sanity and order in the ailing terminal.
“I want to ask the County Government to move with speed and return the washroom to the hands of the matatu association so that we can manage and protect our property,” stated the chairman.
Rarieda also urged all the elected officials of various Matatu Sacco’s to work in harmony and serve their clients with dignity and respect.
