Relationship Between Graphitti And Matatu Industry
Graphitti and the Kenyan matatu industry are like conjoined twins.
There’s no Kenyan route plied by matatu’s commonly known as Mathrees, Matwana or Nganya that lacks the souped up public service vehicles.
In the past, there have been efforts to curb the culture but they were meted with opposition, a good example is during the Michuki era which brought a raft of changes in the matatu industry like fitting of speed governor’s, safety belts and doing away with graphitti’s, the latter failed to take effect.
Recently, Nairobi governor Johnson Sakaja gave a nod for Matatu’s to have graphitti’s as a way of promoting art and creating job opportunities.
