Drama As Bodaboda Blocked From  Accessing Nairobi  CBD



 Police and Nairobi county askaris  today blocked Boda boda operators  from entering the central business district  after a botched demonstration organized by the boda boda  riders  early this morning.

Those who defied were  arrested and their motorbikes confiscatted by the officers manning strategic entry points.

The drama continued better part of the day .

Nairobi County Inspectorate chief officer Tito Kilonzi says the operation to weed boda boa out of the CBD will continue as he faults the group for not heeding to governors’  call to  vacate  the area.

‘‘We will continue arresting them we have zones stipulated by the county where they  should operate but the moment they go against that we don’t have another option but to arrest them.’’ Tito said.

Boda boda operators led by their CBD Chairman has however,  opposed the manner in which they are being handled by the county asakris.

‘’We want to do our business in peace but if you are arresting us  let them do it  with human face.’’ said.

In an interview with Ghetto  Radio News today transport  executive committee Hitan Majedia says they have already allocated enough funds for boda boda sheds in this financial year ,and tha the count will construct the a shed.

He has however, asked them to have a sacco or union so that  the county government can get get it easy to engage them in  some of the policies.

‘‘This is a big challenge we are facing , conducting public participation is very difficult because of  many splinter groups among the boda boda operators .’’

Areas blocked today includes,  Moi Avenue,Kenyatta  Avenue and Nyayo round about.
