The Kenyan government has unveiled new generation vehicles number plates which will be mandatory for every motorist within 18 months at a cost of Kshs.3,000.
Speaking during the unveiling at the GSU Recce Unit Headquarters in Ruiru, Interior Cabinet Secretary Dr. Fred Matiang’i said the move will get rid of fraudulent vehicle dealers in the country.
“One of the promises to Kenyans was that we would go digital and make everything easier for everyone. This will ensure that everybody will be able to interact and work well with vehicles. We want to ensure that people cannot continue to fake number plates,” Said Matiang’i.
The new plates comply with international standards and have security features that are verifiable to allow the enforcement officers to tackle tax evasion and selling of stolen motor vehicles from foreign countries.
