A day after the Kenya Car Importers Association (KCIA) claimed that the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) was out of registration number plates to give out to a number of Kenyans buying cars in the country, the NTSA has finally come out to clear the air, issuing a statement refuting these claims.
The body has stated, however, that there are sufficient reserves in their Nairobi and Mombasa centers, which can go up to KDH 999N/K and KDH/M series.
“In carrying out its mandate, the NTSA creates an enabling environment for all of its stakeholders by ensuring that business operations are not disrupted in any way. In doing so, the Authority has always ensured that identification plates are issued in a timely manner upon registration of motor vehicles “According to the statement issued on Friday.
In a statement on Thursday, KCIA chairman Peter Otieno blamed the Authority for delaying the issuance of registration plates. Furthermore, he stated that the situation has done nothing but stymie their efforts.
