The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) has asked owners of nearly 600 vehicles to present them for inspection by June 5 after it was established that their inspection records are missing.
In a post on its website and social media platforms, NTSA asked owners of the listed vehicles to carry with them original and copy of the certificate of registration (Logbook), importation documents, national ID and KRA PIN certificate, and any other document to prove ownership.

The NTSA has been conducting an audit of its records following the Dusit complex terror attack in February after some officers were arrested over double registration of vehicle involved in the incident.
The car used by the terrorists had the same registration number (KCN 340E) as another vehicle.
Fresh registration and transfer of vehicles was suspended. The incident also resulted in a major shake-up at the NTSA.
Cosmas Ngeso, who was arrested but was not charged, was on April 2 moved from the registration department to safety compliance driver training and testing.
In the changes announced by Director General Francis Meja, Col (Rtd) Hared Hassan Adan was moved from safety compliance to licensing and Wilson Tuigong from licensing to registration.
Christine Ogut, the outgoing Deputy director of Infrastructure and Projects was named the acting Director of Road Safety.
In an internal memo, Mr Meja said clerical officers and officers were transferred effective April 1 while principal motor vehicles inspectors were expected to move to their new stations by May 1. Motor vehicles inspectors will have moved by June 1.
