Matatu owners Friday filed a new application seeking to challenge government’s move to phase out the 14-seater vehicles.

National Transport Safety Authority (NTSA) had blocked the renewal of licenses for 14 seater matatus prompting the association to move to court.

Kimutai also refuted the allegations that he is in full support of NTSA’s move to ban 14 seater matatus from accessing the central business district.
