Gov’t introduces new generation number plates to curb crime

The government through the Interior Ministry has introduced new generation number plates that are meant to curb crime in the country.

Present during the launch was Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiang’i who noted that the new number plates will eliminate loopholes exploited by financial institutions and unscrupulous motor vehicle dealers.

“Commissioning of the new generation number plates marks a historic moment in securitizing vehicle registration by eliminating loopholes exploited by financial fraudsters and unscrupulous motor vehicle importers.” Said CS Matiang’i

Those planning to purchase motor vehicles from the KDK series will enjoy the new number plates effectives 1st October 2022.

In addition to that, the new number plates have been designed in such a way that they capture the vehicle chassis number among other important security features.

“Issuance of new plates will begin with newly registered vehicles from the KDK series and replacement of existing ones to start from 1st October 2022. The plates are linked to the vehicle chassis number with several inbuilt security features that are easily identifiable to law enforcement and comply with international standards.” Said CS Matiang’i

Kenyans have been urged to apply for the new plate numbers at a cost of Ksh 3000 and motorcyclists at a cost of Ksh 750. In the next 18 months, all vehicles are expected to have the new number plates.
