VIDEO: 32 BRT buses arrive in Nairobi as local manufactures protest

Published

on

A photo of one of the buses to be used in Nairobi’s Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service has emerged.

The image of the high-capacity bus imported by the government from South Africa has been obtained by The Star.

Transport and Infrastructure Cabinet Secretary James Macharia says that the first batch of the vehicles has already arrived in the country.

The large buses are painted yellow and dark blue and are written NaMATA on the side.

The publication says NaMATA stands for Nairobi Metropolitan Area Transport Authority.

BRT, also called a busway or transitway, is a bus-based public transport system designed to improve capacity and reliability relative to a conventional bus system. Typically, a BRT system includes roadways that are dedicated to buses, and gives priority to buses at intersections where buses may interact with other traffic; alongside design features to reduce delays caused by passengers boarding or leaving buses, or purchasing fares. BRT aims to combine the capacity and speed of a metro with the flexibility, lower cost and simplicity of a bus system.

“The first batch was 32 buses. What we are now trying to do is fast track the construction of stations and other supporting infrastructure so that as the buses come, we shall have proper infrastructure,” says CS Macharia.

“We are just contracting and it will be done very quickly… maybe one or two months to make sure we have proper support infrastructure.”

Macharia notes that the government has already set aside Sh1.2 billion for setting up of BRT supporting infrastructure.

The rollout of the BRT system is part of the government’s bid to reduce traffic congestion in the city and revamp the capital’s public transport system.

In January this year,  Kenya Association of Manufacturers (KAM) criticised the importation of vehicles for the Bus Rapid Transport (BRT), saying the move defeats the Big Four Agenda.

In a statement, KAM said manufacturing, as a key pillar in the Big Four Agenda for the country, means that local sourcing towards the growth of the sector and the consequent provision of jobs to our citizens cannot be understated.

“In our endeavour to grow the sector at 35% per year to achieve the desired 15% GDP contribution by 2022, the Buy Kenya Build Kenya Strategy should be rigorous and should prevail for both the short and medium term. This is especially so for products that can easily be manufactured within the country,” it said.

According to KAM, as the largest procurement entity in the country, the Government, where possible, ought to direct its spending on locally manufactured goods with a view of supporting the Big Four Agenda.

Currently, it said the manufacturing sector’s contribution to the GDP is 8.3%, with a registered growth of 0.2% growth in 2017. Favouring imports over local content, as seen in the recent importation of 64 BRT buses from South Africa, bypassing the local bus assemblers and body builders, goes against the agenda to boost the sector’s ability to provide employment locally and increase its GDP contribution towards the country’s economic goals.
