Uasin Gishu Governor Jackson Mandago has once again warn public transport operators to follow the rules of social distancing or risk clamping until the Corona Pandemic is over.
“We asked our Bodaboda riders to observe sanitation rules and carry only one passenger but I am sad that they have largely ignored this call. I am therefore giving a last warning to follow these rules or risk a total ban”, Mandago said.
He asked transport operators to learn from Italy where people ignored the call for social distancing and now they have been pictured throwing money in the streets because it not helpful even in these times when they are worst hit by pandemic.
The Governor, while thanking a majority of Matatu operators who have implemented set rules, also gave a stern warning to those still flaunting rules that their vehicles will be clamped until the pandemic is over.
Meanwhile, the county boss has also asked residents to adhere to curfew rules or risk being taken to quarantine at their cost.
“ I am putting all administrators on notice that they shall be considered to be abating crime should residents in your jurisdictions ignore rules set to help curb the spread of Corona infection in the country” , He said.
The county boss also put on notice those operating illegal bars and illicit brew dens especially in the rural areas saying that they will face the full force of law.
