Importers now have something to smile about after the government announced a minimum age limit of second-hand cars imported into the country.

Trade CS Peter Munya has on Tuesday confirmed that cap on vehicle importation from 8 years to 5 years is still a proposal pending public participation.

Legislators blamed the ministry of trade of making policies without involving them.

Appearing before the Trade and Industries committee of the National Assembly, Peter Munya assured the lawmakers that all stakeholders will be involved in decision making.

The government’s move to cap the age limit from 8 years to 5 years worried car importers and dealers as they had to hike prices of the vehicles.

With the high prices, demand for the vehicles will be low as Kenyans will have to dig deeper in order to make a purchase.
