Kenyans on Monday reignited the debate on ban of bodaboda operators from Nairobi.
This follows an incident captured on video, showing some riders attempting to strip a female motorist for allegedly causing an accident along Forest Road.
The video widely shared by Facebook users on March 7, showed the motorist trying to escape before being slowed down by a traffic jam.
The riders catch up with her, and begin to hit her car, as others forcefully open her car, and begin to touch her inappropriately, while others rough her up.
The unidentified female motorists helplessly scream, before a voice can be heard of some people pleading with the riders not to beat her up.
Kenyans who were angered with the incident called for the ban of bodaboda from the entire Nairobi as they have been a nuisance to the traffic through their bad-mannered mob injustice behavior.
“ANNOUNCE a total ban on Bodaboda in Nairobi capital. Total. Make Nairobi a no bodaboda ZONE. Wacha tutembee,” wrote Wahome Thuku.
“All thugs and crooks are hiding in the bodaboda industry. I agree wacha tutembee,” wrote June June.
“I hope all those men captured on video attacking and molesting the young lady will be rounded up, be charged in court and be sent to jail. Our streets must be safe for our daughter, sisters and mothers,” wrote Joshua Odhiambo Nyamori.
“If you can identify any of the Boda thugs in the Forest Road Assault, and report him, you will have done lots of Justice to everyone,” posted Gordon Opiyo.
A very unfortunate incident!
