Owners of private cars will from next year have to present them to the government for inspection annually in a new policy shift meant to improve road safety.
Kenyans on social media were on Tuesday irked by an announcement by government that all private cars will be subjected to annual inspections beginning next year.
According to Transport Principal Secretary Nduva Muli, the new rules would require all vehicles to have a certificate of inspection displayed on their windscreens.
Motorists whose cars are more than four years old will be required to present them to designated inspection centres every year.
The new rules are a breakaway from the current regime where only commercial vehicles are required to bear an inspection certificate.
