As the matatu guys, we got the pleasant company of representatives of The Shell Foundation to take them on a matatu ride. It was their first time aboard a matatu and we guided them to our very own creation of a Wamasaa Sacco graffiti-laden matatu, with a large screen playing local music, wifi connectivity and comfy seats as we cruised the highway from Town to Kitengela.
To say they enjoyed the ride is an understatement. They were wowed. They also got first-hand information about matatus and how class and appearance is the new wave to get more waves on the MyRide app.
We also went to the matatu ‘incubator’ and saw first hand as the Samurai matatu underwent a complete makeover to pimp future rides. The makeover encompassed the body, alignment, seats, sound system and the interior. Impressed by the talent and the matatu culture, we called it a day!
Below are the snaps of the Samurai matatu ‘before’ and we can’t keep calm to see the ‘after’ snaps!
