Matatu culture is the lifeblood of Kenyan pop culture.

But this has been replaced by matatu SACCOs that have to follow government regulations on how the mode of transport is branded.

According to the Matatu owners association, all the matatus on the road have to be registered to a SACCO.

These SACCOs are grouped based on locations. And man, aren't their names silly and hilarious?

Here are a few matatu and bus SACCOs with names that could make you pee your pants from bouts of ceaseless laughter.
