Speed governors were made mandatory for public service vehicles under the infamous ‘Michuki Rules’.

The late John Njoroge Michuki, who was the Transport Minister, ordered that all matatus and buses have speed governors and passenger safety belts installed.

The move was aimed at restoring order in the chaotic matatu sector.

A year later, the Traffic Act (Cap.403) was enacted. A section of it reads:

“Pursuant to rule 41 A (b) (i) and (ii) of the Traffic Rules, 2005, the Minister for Transport approves the types of speed governors listed in the schedule to be fitted in every public service vehicle and commercial vehicle with a tare weight of 3048 Kgs and above, having been tested and passed as competent speed limiters.”
