Hours after ‘disrupting’ travel along the Ngong-City Centre route, famous matatu Sacco Super Metro has advertised for driver and conductor jobs.
The Sacco, which has become a byword for decency and order in an industry overrun by riff-raff, is operating in some of the major routes including Thika-Nairobi and Kikuyu-City Centre.
“With the extension to Ngong, as a company we shall be creating job opportunities to local residents meaning we shall employ crew members and Route marshals,” said Super Metro on Twitter.
The move to advertise jobs was a slap in the face of conventional matatu operators along the Ngong-City Centre route who had gone on strike in protests.
Interested candidates for driver jobs are required to submit three colored passports, a driving license, certificate of good conduct and copy of ID.
Conductors should, besides the above documents, submit a letter from previous employer.
The Sacco, whose offices are in Njengi House, 7th floor, promises to continue serving Kenyans in spite of opposition from the competition.
