Kisumu Disability Network have launched a campaign to dispute the new traffic bill that bars public cars from carrying any luggage.
They say that this rule targets them as they are the people usually travel alongside with their wheel chairs in the public transport.
This bill is unaccepted in totality as it will affect our right of movement in the public transport sector and its contradicting to the earlier bill that requires the government to make all places accessible to disable people.said Singi Osodo Chairman.
They said that they are going to hold demonstration until the government will stop this act of intimidation with introducing unpalatable bills in the society.
Speaking during the meeting with the Kisumu Police bosses, the disability network chairman Mr. Singi Osodo said that they have given a notice to the Kisumu OCPD Mr. Musa. Kongoli to allow them conduct a peaceful demonstration to their displeasure to the government.
We are worried on how to travel since our wheelchairs cannot be carried by public cars.said Singi Osodo Network Chairman.
Mr. Osodo also appealed to the government through the Ministry of Transport on a way of assisting them so that they can move freely like other Kenyans.
Our demonstration is on from tomorrow so let us join hands to show our grievances to the government,he insisted.
Either the Regional Traffic Commandant Mr. Joshua Omukhata who also attended that meeting said the issue is above them as the orders were issued by the Cabinet Secretary.
We have just to implement these orders as they come from the Ministry and as for now, we can’t help them unless new directions are givensaid Joshua Omukhata.
This means the network will hold a demonstration as planed since they have informed the police to provide them with security as envisaged in the New Constitution.
