Gov’t condemns uncouth Boda Boda Riders

The Boda Boda Association of Kenya and the Kenya Police Service have been called upon to take action on the Boda Boda riders who assaulted a woman on Monday along Forest Road in Nairobi.

Government Spokesperson Col. (Rtd) Cyrus Oguna in a press statement to newsrooms said the government conveys its sincere compassion with the lady affected during the incident, which he termed inhumane and deemed unacceptable by all Kenyans.

“We are concerned that such incidences have been on the rise, one in Kisii and Nairobi among others in parts of the country. We cannot allow such acts to continue,” said Oguna.

The Spokesperson appealed to all members of the public who witnessed the incident to identify those who were involved to enable the police take the necessary action.

“We assure Kenyans that necessary measures will be taken to ensure that justice is served on all the victims of such harassments,” he stressed.

Oguna said to avoid such uncouth and inhumane behaviour, the Boda Boda Association should root out all the bad elements within the industry, while urging all road users to observe and operate within the set of traffic rules and regulations of the country without infringing on the human, property and road use rights.

The Spokesperson said the government acknowledges the important role the Boda Boda Industry plays in the growth of the country’s economy through creating employment for the young people, but however, it will not condone bad elements to spoil the industry.
