A number of Kenyans have supported the government's initiative to initiate a national crackdown that will help in streamlining the sector.
It turns out that many people, especially Nairobians have fallen victims of ills from rogue Boda Boda riders in the city.
Some shared with Mpasho some of their nasty experiences like being assaulted, robbed, risky driving and sexual harassment.
Here are some of the experiences shared.
@Mash - Haha, he overlapped right in front of a police car...ended up being a police chase.with me holding on to my dear life.
@ Shammie - "I got mugged just last week Thursday. It was horrible, I’m still traumatized to date. 3 guys on a boda boda , pulled my handbag and in the process my hand got hurt, despite them doing away with my phone, documents, money and house keys!"
@ Nina - "Don't respect lights and I almost had an accident with one recently."
@ Lily - "Kwanza driving across Nairobi streets anyhowly and disorderly. They distract pedestrians when they are crossing the roads!"
@ Sheri - "I was given 10 minutes to raise 9k or my car would go up in flames after hitting one by mistake along the Meru Embu highway. The rider didn't have a license or insurance. Wakora sana."
However, other netizens have good memories of the Boda Boda riders they have come across.
@ Sarah - "Some are really good. Was involved in an accident in the wee hrs of the night, all motorists were just passing by without caring. The bodaboda guys came to our rescue. Not all of them are bad."
@ Noni- "I was late for my flight at Wilson Airport, I came down from a Taxi and took a boda just after Karen Hospital. I was the last person to board the plane. If it wasn't for the boda... singewahi."
