Starehe MP Charles Njagua alias Jaguar has moved to court to challenge Nairobi County Government’s decision to ban boda bodas from accessing the CBD.

According to Njagua, the decision by governor Mike Sonko was reached without consulting all the relevant stakeholders.

The MP further termed the move as ill informed, unilaterally made and based on irrelevant considerations.

The legislator was keen to observe that the boda boda ban may result in more harm than good as the operators will be left frustrated and without a source of income which may force them to engage in criminal activities.

He added that the ban is curtailing the economic rights of many riders who rely on ferrying passengers to and from the CBD.

Njagua wants the court to quash the notice by the county  government.
