At a meeting with Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i on Friday, January 27, the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) unveiled its new-look number plates.

The NTSA announced last week that it was working on a new system to crack down on all motorists in Kenya.
The authority mentioned that the new system is intended to synchronize the digital vehicle registry and to facilitate management of all vehicles on Kenyan roads.
This comes after the revelation that some unroadworthy vehicles, which had been flagged off the road, had sneaked back into the transport sector causing a spike in accidents.
