Boda boda operators now soft spot for criminal gangs


Boda boda operators in  Nairobi  now say they have become soft spot for gangs and rogue matatu operators.

In a meeting held today at Uhuru Park Bodaboda Safety Association of Kenya chairman Ken Onyango says ,they have lost many colleagues in the  hands of gangs   pretending  to be customers and use them to commit crimes and later attack them.

The latest casualty is Benson Kanyabari who was  beaten to death by rogue matatu operators at stage 44 when  he was trying to save  his customer  from being robbed.

Meanwhile they are now engaging the police to ensure that all boda boda riders   acquire and must have a card that identifies  the operators’  stage and their full names.

According to him the move will help the residents identify each and every individual to avoid cases of crime.

Areas that have implemented the use of identification card is Umoja,Kariobangi ,CBD ,Kawangware ,Kangemi and Langata .
