Over 60 taxis curbed off the road for operating illegally in a span of a week


More than 60 taxis were curbed off the road for operating illegally in a span of a week. 

This was enabled by a new application that is fast and effective in identifying registered and non-registered taxis. 

During their patrols, the City Police usually made calls to confirm if the operating taxis were registered, which was a lengthy and ineffective process at times.  

However, with the new operating system identification is instant.

Chief of City Police Abraham Kanime says some of the unregistered taxis are used to commit criminal activities.
