THE GOVERNMENT WILL NOW NOT DESTROY VEHICLES INITIALLY CONDEMNED TO BE SMASHED.

The owners of Vehicles imported against the eight year rule can now re- export them. This comes as a reprieve. The law does not allow vehicles old than eight years to the the country.

he Kenya Bureau of Standards (Kebs) has allowed some importers of vehicles aged above eight years to re-export them instead of them being crushed. The vehicles have been impounded by government authorities over time and stored at various container freight stations in Mombasa. Recently there were reports that they would be crushed for flouting Kenya's safety and import regulations. Following threats by Kenya Revenue Authority KRA to destroy thousands of impounded vehicles some importers went to court to block the planned destruction while other sought permission to re-export them. Kebs has however urged the Association of Importers of Motor Vehicles (AIMV) whose members have reportedly imported 3000 vehicles aged more than eight years to seek clearance of other government agencies such as Kenya Revenue Authority ( KRA). AIMV national chairman Peter Mambembe who applied for Kebs re-export permission termed the move as a relief to members.

NEW DRIVER LICENSE CONDITIONS

Government of Kenya plans to do a mandatory re-testing of drivers could inflidge on driving freedoms of motorists. Cabinet Secretary Engineer M. Kamau has indicated that all Kenya driver will undergo the exercise in 2012. 

Matatus whose drivers are said to flout most rules could be the first casualties if the measure is effected.

The goverment intends to introduce a new driving license which it claims should be free of rogue drivers. Goverment sets the National Youth Service standards as the benchmark for new driving.

However critics fault the move as farfetched as the same authority is to blame for running faulty driving test for many years where some would get driving license without being tested at all courtesy same goverment high level corruption.
