Tuesday, March 8, 2022 – Fresh details have emerged over how police and city askaris have contributed to the bodaboda menace in the country, particularly in Nairobi‘s Central Business District (CBD).
On Monday, an army of bodaboda riders was caught on camera harassing a female motorist along Forest Road and almost stripped her naked after she hit a bodaboda rider.
This is just one among hundreds of similar incidents that happen across the Kenyan capital almost daily.
All attempts to control the gung-ho brigade always seem to taper off without as much as a dent in their mode of operation.
Police from Kamukunji Police Station and Central Police Station and City Council Askaris are the catalysts of the bodaboda menace since they collect a bribe of Sh 50 daily from every bodaboda operator in the city.
“Yes we bribe police and Kanjos Sh 50 bob daily to operate,”’ said Vincent who operates a Bodaboda along Duruma Road in Nairobi.
