Nairobi County inspectorate department has this morning intensified crackdown on rogue boda boda operators.

The crackdown aims at weeding out the criminal elements with the sector that has sparked public outrage.

The crackdown continues even as Interior CS Fred Matiangi was meeting officials of the boda boda associations at the Kenyatta International Conference Centre-KICC. In the meeting, it has been resolved that all boda boda operators undergo a fresh registration exercise which will be free of charge.

Within 60 days, new smart driving licenses will be issued to those who will have registered for easy identification. Matiangi directed the Nairobi County Commissioner Kangethe Thuku to be convening a monthly meeting with the associations amid efforts to iron out pending issues and cleanse the bad blood between police and boda boda operators.

“This government does recognize the revenue generated by the sector and will not undermine that effort but we are making these changes so that we can streamline the systems adhere to code of conduct,” said Matiangi.
