Move to ban boda bodas from city centre ill timed

The move by the county government of Nairobi to ban boda boda operators from the CBD will lead to a lot of suffering.

Most motorcycle taxis are operated by young men who dropped out of school and are out to fend for their families.

Boda bodas are the cheapest mode of transport by poor Kenyans.

They are also fast since they are not normally caught up in traffic, and this is convenient for passengers.

It could be best if the county government gave reasons why they decided to the motorcycle taxis within the CBD.

I urge Governor Evans Kidero to reconsider this move.
