Friday, March 11, 2022 – ODM Leader Raila Odinga has condemned the ongoing nationwide crackdown on rogue Boda Boda operators, which was sanctioned by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

This is after Uhuru ordered that all Boda Boda operators across the country be registered afresh following last Friday’s incident where a group of rogue riders attacked and molested a female driver in Nairobi.

Speaking at the Maua Stadium in Meru County during a fundraiser for various women groups yesterday, Raila challenged police officers to focus their energy and resources towards finding the actual perpetrators of the assault.

The former Prime Minister cautioned the National Police Service against the victimization of all Boda Boda operators due to the misdeeds of a few bad apples.

“Mtu akifanya makosa, huyo ndio aende ashikwe. Mtu ambaye amefanya uhalifu, yeye ndio mhalifu…lakini sio eti wale wote ambao wako kwa hiyo biashara ni wahalifu. 

Watu wa boda boda wasiadhibiwe kwa makosa ya mtu mmoja…wale wengine waachiliwe kwa maana wanafanya kazi nzuri. Ningependa kuhimiza askari waache kuumiza watu wa boda boda,” Raila said.

Loosely translated to: “If anyone makes a mistake, he should be arrested. The person who has committed the crime is the culprit… but not all those in that business are criminals. Boda Boda people should not be punished for the mistake of one person … the others should be released because they are doing a good job. I would like to urge the police to stop harassing the Boda Boda people. ”
