Wednesday, March 9, 2022 – President Uhuru Kenyatta’s government has waived licensing fees for Boda Boda operators in the latest move to reform the sector.

Interior Cabinet Secretary, Dr. Fred Matiang’i, made the announcement during a forum held with different stakeholders and Boda Boda riders at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre (KICC) on Wednesday, March 9.

The CS noted that the directive was issued by President Uhuru Kenyatta, a day after he announced a countrywide crackdown.

Initially, Boda Boda operators were required to pay Sh5, 000, but with the latest move, the exercise will be free.

“President Uhuru Kenyatta has waived all that fees, you will be registered for free. NTSA will not ask for Sh5,000, the president has said free registration,” Matiang’i stated.

“This will enable them to get licenses so that the government can identify every rider with their area of operation,” Matiangi added

The powerful CS further stated that registration will be overseen by the National Transport Safety (NTSA) and qualifying operators will be issued with new smart cards.

He stated that the registration will effectively begin from Monday, March 21, and will be done at various Huduma centers across the country.
