Boda Boda riders decry extortion


Tension is high among bodaboda operators along Muratina Road and Mobil  Plaza areas in Muthaiga Nairobi where it is alleged that a group of rowdy youths  are extorting as much as Ksh 40,000 from the operators as fee to allow them operate in the area.

According to one Philip Ochieng , those who resist to remit the monies are threatened or even violently attacked.

“I have been threatened by these youth, they say that I have to pay 40,000 shillings for me to operate….I dont agree with this because there is no law that compels me to do that”  he said.

The operators are now asking the relevant authorities to intervene  and restore sanity  because they’re fearing for their lives.
