Hundreds of passengers, including school going children, are still stranded in various bus stages in Nairobi for the third day in a row.

This is as a result of the ban by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) on all long distance night travel by public service vehicles following the deadly bus crash at Migaa that claimed the lives of 36 people.

Huge crowds of stranded travellers have been witnessed at various bus parks around the capital city as they try to board the few available buses for travel before nightfall.

At the Easy Coach bus stage and booking office, a crowd of passengers, mostly heading to western Kenya, were at the lounge waiting for buses to arrive.

Pamela Atieno, with a student supposed to report to St Mary’s Yala in Siaya County, told Nation that she has been at the stage for a while now, waiting for her son to get into a bus.

“We have been here since 6am and still no bus has arrived. I don’t know at what time I will get a bus,” said a worried Ms Atieno.
