Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i is set to appoint a new board in a major overhaul of the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA).
Matiang'i will unveil the new board before Wednesday in a move aimed at addressing corruption at the authority, according to The Standard.
“The CS and PS are set to visit the NTSA probably Tuesday to unveil the new board and warn staffs who are engaged in corrupt activities,” a source told The Standard.
This comes at a time when the agency's officials have been accused of engaging in corrupt activities that endanger national security.
CS Matiang'i held a crisis meeting with NTSA officials on Friday following increased cases of fake car number plates and double registration of vehicles.
For instance, police impounded 26 vehicles with duplicate number plates last month alone.
The overhaul will come weeks after President Kenyatta through an Executive Order moved NTSA from the Ministry of Transport to the Interior docket which is held by Matiang'i.
Last week, seven NTSA officers were arraigned in court on accusations of issuing a fake registration number to a vehicle used by attackers during the January 15th terror attack at DusitD2 complex in Nairobi's Westlands area, where 21 people were killed.
The seven; Anthony Kadu, Jacqueline Githinji, Cosmas Ngeso, Irving Irungu, Stephen Kariuki, Charles Ndung'u and Augustine Mulwa Musembi will remain in custody for 30 days pending completion of investigations into the matter.
