The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has finally responded after President Uhuru Kenyatta's ordered them off Kenyan roads.
NTSA Director-General Francis Meja assured of full compliance with the President’s order though he stated he would communicate more later.
“The authority’s board will give a comprehensive statement on the way forward at an appropriate time,” Mr Meja was quoted by the Nation.

Assistant Inspector General of Police Charles Owino on Wednesday stated that the NTSA should not interfere with the work of the officers.
His sentiments came a day after Mr Kenyatta ordered the body off Kenyan roads, adding they should leave the enforcement of traffic laws to police.
Owino also read from a similar script while speaking during an interview on Citizen TV where he assured NTSA that police would still work together with them.
"NTSA has a role to play in policy making but it is not supposed to enforce laws and regulations.
"NTSA and the police should still work together to ensure the policies are implemented," he remarked.
Mr Kenyatta stated that the officers should leave the duty of manning roads to traffic police.
He was speaking in Meru during the burial of African Independent Pentecostal Church of Africa (AIPCA) bishops who were killed in a horrific car crash.
