National Police Service (NPS) and the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) have been deployed along major highways in Kenya to man traffic ahead of school reopening.

Inspector General of Police Japhet Koome said that the officers had been sent following traffic detected nationwide as a result of the heavy rains.

The IG pleaded with motorists to work together with the officers, summing up that the move comes days before schools reopen for the second term next week.

“Primary and secondary schools are due for re-opening next week during the rainy season. The ongoing heavy rains and floods being experienced in the country have not only claimed lives but also rendered some roads and rivers impassable,” he said.

Koome said they expect an increase in traffic as schools reopen.
