Police enhanced crackdown on Bodaboda operators

Security personnel in Homa bay County have intensified a crackdown on motorcyclists who operates without required  documents.

The  crackdown on Motorcyclists which started last week is meant to ensure that the riders abide by traffic regulations.

Speaking  to KNA, Homa Bay Sub County Police Commander, Sammy Koskei stressed that motorcyclists  who  will be found flauting the regulations by carrying more than one person, lacking helmets for both the rider and pillion besides Insurance covers will be arrested and prosecuted.

The  officer further reiterated that the police will continue doing their work until the boda-boda operators adhere to the new set of rules governing transport sector.

He stressed that the operators were given enough time to adjust to the new set of rules laid out by the cabinet secretary.

At  the same  time, Koskei  urged the operators to cooperate with police in making the exercise a success rather than considering  it  as  harassment.

The  Boda-boda operators in the region have been complaining of police harassment since the exercise kicked off.

Most of them have however failed to adhere to the new transport policies as they are still seen carrying more than one pillion and also lack the passenger helmets.
