JOGOO KIMAKIA headed to Muranga


At one time, the Jogoo Kimakia Bus Service, operating on the central Kenya routes, had more than 100 buses. Owned by Dedan Njoroge Nduati, the bus company had been built by a man who in 1945, was only operating a kiosk.

He saved enough money to purchase a lorry. It was from the small transport business between Murang’a, Thika, and Nairobi that a bus company grew.

In 1957, Mr Nduati approached Credit Finance Corporation for financial assistance and founded the Jogoo Kimakia Bus Company Ltd in 1961. By 1973, he had built a fleet of 80 buses.

He divested from the transport business in the 1980s following stiff competition from matatus.
