Several Ugandan traders are among the thousands affected by the new public transport regulations in neighboring Kenya.
Travelers are stuck by the road sides
in the Kenyan capital Nairobi after many bus and taxi operators withdrew their vehicles for fear of being arrested.
Among the new regulations is the requirement to have speed governors and to be registered with a local SACCO that has not less than 30 commuter taxis.
We spoke to Noah Kigoye, one of the affected traders who says a bus that was moving from Eldoret to Nairobi has been set ablaze but its not yet clear if any casualties have been registered.
