    Sakaja Issues Boda Boda Operators Guidelines Following Rise in Crime

    Published on

    Nairobi County Governor Johnson Sakaja has taken action in response to increased crime rates, with a focus on the boda boda riders who have been implicated in illegal activity.

    On November 13, after attending church at AIPCA Dandora, Sakaja addressed the media and said that the government is trying to guarantee that all boda boda riders are registered with data about their area of operation.

    Riders will thereafter be obliged to wear reflective jackets with information about their service areas and designated drop-off locations.

    “Although most people working in the boda-boda industry are not thieves, there may be one or two people who are damaging the industry’s reputation. The riders will be outfitted with reflector jackets bearing their operational areas after we have registered each one. There will be designated drop-off areas and drop-off stages for the riders when they arrive in town. The procedure has already begun.” He remarked.

    In addition, the governor promised that his government would take a hard line against the dishonest boda boda operators who are bringing the industry’s reputation into disrepute.
