Kenya Discontinue Age Limit Law for Imported Second-Hand Cars

Posted on : Friday , 14th June 2019

It was a comfort for importers of second hand vehicles after the government discontinued plans to cap the age limit for imported second-hand cars at 5 years from the present 8.
 
While showing up before the Trade and Industries board of the National Assembly, Trade CS Peter Munya the cap was a proposition. “It is still in its draft structure and yet to undergo public participation,” said CS Munya. This was after the legislators disclosed concerns that the ministry was making approaches without including them.
 
They even termed CS Munya’s pronouncement as roadside statement. He however guaranteed the legislators that the existing conditions stays until all stakeholders are included and the policy is passed in Parliament. The new set of regulations seeks to cap importation of used cars from 8 to 5 years beginning this July. In 2021, the limit is proposed to be 3 years and lastly zero by the year 2024.
 
The Kenyan government further wants limitation on importation of second hand vehicles of over 1500cc and surpassing 5 years from date of manufacturing.
 
The plan has since been met by solid restriction from vendors who say the business is the monetary pillar for over 2 million individuals, directly and indirectly. Some even told off the Kenya Bureau of Standards KeBS technical team saying the proposed national automotive policy is corrective and inconsiderate of their complaints.
