On Monday, October 3, the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) detained two touts who were seen dangling precariously from the door of a moving matatu.
On Sunday, October 2, a video showed the two, who did not avoid the camera, dangling from the Buruburu-bound matatu went viral and drew criticism.
The person driving the matatu that was carrying the two offenders was also detained.
The authority said in a statement that the two will face charges in accordance with the regulations outlined in the Kenyan Constitution.
The matatu violated traffic laws in Kenya, according to the NTSA, by hooting while driving on the highway and by transporting passengers who had parts of their bodies outside.
A Ksh3,000 fine will be imposed for hooting, while a Ksh1,000 immediate punishment will be assessed for traveling with a body part outside the vehicle.
