Nonetheless, one of the sectors that have had a tough past is the boda boda sector. According to the chairman of Boda boda riders Nakuru, Mr. Wanjohi, boda boda riders are given high fines whenever they find themselves on the wrong side of the law. He urged deputy president William Ruto to address the issue.

Wanjohi further added that there are no specific rules or regulations put in public to guide them on where to park their motor bikes as they drop their customers.

High interest on loans

Additionally, Wanjohi also said that the loans given to boda boda riders always come with a very high interest. For instance, when one takes a boda boda worth 150,000 on loan, he is required to pay it in one and a half years with an interest of between 100,000 to 150,000 shillings.

Addressing the issue, Dr William Ruto said that as Kenya Kwanza, they will lower the interest to only 10,000 shillings should they win upcoming general elections.
