A section of angry women in Kiambu on Thursday held a series of demonstrations demanding the cancellation of operation licences for buses run by Kenya Mpya Transport Company.
The women attempted to barricade roads in Juja, Thika and Ruiru towns in protest of the increased number of accidents caused by buses managed by this company.
The protesters were demanding NTSA to cancel the licences of all buses and matatus whose fleet occasionary caused loss of lives through accidents.
Anti-riot police had to use teargas to disperse the women who had barricaded Thika Road near Juja for the better part of the morning.

On Thursday morning, a bus owned by Kenya Mpya was involved in an accident in which five people died as scores sustained injuries and admitted to the Kalimoni mission hospital.
It was the fourth time a bus owed by the company was involved in an accident since its inception.
Last month, two buses run by the company were involved in two separate accidents on the same day, one near Blue post Hotel, Thika claiming 8 lives while the other at Githurai where over ten people were injured.
