A rusty car traveling on a Nairobi road has sparked outrage on social media, with Kenyans accusing the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) of negligence.
In a video seen by Sambazanews, a worn tray with a registration plate, KAW 616P, was replaced with front glass and polythene paper and most parts are missing.
Parts of the improved rear glass cracked, and there were no rear lights or turning signals. The car also did not have chevrons, a common requirement for PSVs and trucks.

The thunder seemed to shake and it looked like scrap metal instead of a passenger car.
Verification of registration of the matatu in the NTSA self-service application indicated that the vehicle was not registered as a Passenger Service Vehicle (PSV).
The vehicle was also last inspected on October 4, 2019, meaning that the inspection certificate had expired. Moreover, it is not registered under any Sacco.
The NTSA has not yet responded to the video.
