Episode 10: Dereva, Chunga Maisha!

Episode 10: Dereva, Chunga Maisha!

Road safety has been on the tip of our tongues and the top of our minds after a matatu (KCG 748M) serving the Ongata Rongai route crashed in late September killing four people on the spot and injuring six others. We protested online and offline, the NTSA, Ongata Line Transporters Company and the police engaged in finger pointing, and we yet again found ourselves asking the question we’ve asked so many times before: what is wrong with Kenyan roads, and can it be fixed? We explore that this week. Press play!

    1. Hi Samuel, there is only one episode of the podcast called that. That is this one. All the rest are on different topics and have different titles.
