Protest the banning of our Matatu Culture sign now

We the undersigned, protest the banning of 14-seater matatus effective January 2011. We also protest banning of graffiti on Matatus.
Vehicle customization provide gainful employment to thousands of young creative people, not to mention creating a culture unique to only Kenya.
By all means instill good road practices in our country,but leave our 'Nganyas' alone. Vehicles do not cause accidents, people do.
