Kenya's Interior CS, Dr. Fred Matiang'i, on Tuesday launched the new-look number plates with enhanced and unique security features that comply with international standards.
The new plates are designed to frustrate fakes/imitations and are integral in combating crime such as vehicle theft, fraud, tax evasion and terrorism, among others.
The rollout will start with the KDK… series for newly-registered vehicles, while the replacement of current plates will start on October 1, 2022.
The National Government will solely manufacture the plates to guarantee quality and cost-effectiveness.
The launch was also witnessed by Cabinet Secretaries James Macharia, Joe Mucheru and PS Dr. Karanja Kibicho, among others.
"Each one of the number plates is going to have a serial number. There will be a correspondence between the serial number and the chassis number, so if the police arrest someone driving a Range Rover and the number plate is registered under a tractor, all that is what we will address with these plates," reiterated Matiang'i.
Kenya will have one year and six months to replace their old plates with new ones.©Standard Gazette, 2021.
