Kenyan Transportation System(the Matatu Culture) by Noble11(m): 7:46pm On May 01, 2017
I have been to some countries around africa and outside africa too..But most of my interest are the mode of transportation in those countries..
Like the luxury Dubai taxi and the Metro train in china
But what got my attention is the kenyan transportation system called MATATU.
Just like what we have in Naija,(from idumota to mile 2 or ojuelegba etc) but these buses are pimped in and out,some spend upto $500 just for pimping of their buses.
The sound systems are out of this world.
Make sure your phones are on vibration
The front seats are mostly for the ladies unless you have connections.
Its mostly for young people.
Most of the buses have wifi,CCTV and charging pots.
If you hate the traffic jams then the bus is what you need cos most of them don't obey traffic rules.
Make sure you try using one of them whenever you are in kenya.
Pictures and more coming....
Note:pls mod should move it to appropriate forum.thanks

They are selling their country to the world so that more jobs can be created there while you are insulting yours, I hope you are okay, the bad roads in your street will pull the bumper, Nigeria is bigger than the road to your hut.
