Did you just get a loan from the bank and buy that dream matatu you have wanted to have for so long. Or are you already in the business and are the owner of a matatu/Bus or matatus/Buses which begin work at 5.00 am and return at the appointed time at night. Many things happen during the day but most of all, you want to be sure that all is well with your matatu. Cell phones keep you in touch, but what happens if there is no network and your driver is mteja for hours? Or his phone’s battery dies and he cannot recharge it? Or the cell phone is stolen? Or for one reason or the other, he has no cell phone? What if misfortune strikes and the driver is not in a position to communicate with you? But even more important - how many passengers were transported from point A to point B? Which of course adds up to what is earned for the day.
