Let me express my gratitude to the disciplined forces for the service they have rendered in handling the matter.

Every single one of them will have their number plates withdrawn and further, more severe, sanctions will follow, to the full extent of the law.

This will include cancelling operating licences for SACCOs under which the vehicles operate.
