Boda boda riders to get special identity numbers


All boda boda riders across the country will by March next year have special numbers on their motorbikes and reflector jackets for easy identification process.

This means anyone wishing to give boda boda riders reflector jackets will now have to pass through the Boda boda Safety Association for the acquisition of the numbers before they are distributed.

Kevin Mubadi Chairman Boda boda Safety Association says the move is to help curb insecurity cases being perpetrated by some rogue boda boda riders.

Mubadi says each boda boda operators in all the 47 counties will also have to register with the association in order to get the numbers that uniquely identify them.

The special numbers will however not interfere with the number plates issued on the motorbikes.
