Migori County AP Commander, Daniel Rukunga, has challenged the County Government to come up with policies that will bring sanity in the boda boda sector.

Speaking in MigoriTown, Rukunga expressed concerns over the number of bodaboda riders who are killed in their line of duty saying that it is unfortunate that many operators have been murdered and others robbed by people posing as customers.

“The operators have been victims of people of questionable characters because some of them operate in areas they are not versed with, and some work till late,” said Rukunga.

“There is need for the county government to come up with a policy that will ensure every boda boda operates in a particular route and each assigned an identification number.”

The AP Commander has also proposed that, like in other counties, the County Government sets up an office where night boda boda customers can record their particulars before they are ferried to their destinations, adding that such reforms will help reduce motorcycle-related crimes, if enforced well.

This comes amid an increase in rate of crimes in the area with criminals posing as clients murdering motor cyclists and making away with their motorcycles.
