Nakuru Town East MP David Gikaria has faulted Nakuru MCAs for failing to come up with proper policies to govern Bodaboda operators in Nakuru’s CBD.
Gikaria says the operations of stages in town falls under the county government and the MCAs have a big role to ensure that there are proper policies in place to govern the same.
He said the Bodaboda sector has employed many youths and has continued to contribute greatly towards economy growth hence should not be taken for granted.
“The sector is key as it contributes to the economy. But again I blame the MCAs in Nakuru for not coming up with proper policies and even engage the governor since all town operations and stages fall under county government” said Gikaria.
Addressing media in Nakuru after Bodaboda operators within Nakuru’s CBD raised concerns over what they termed as harassment by security officers, Gikaria was categorical that the matter should be solved amicably.
He revealed that he together with Nakuru Town West MP Samuel Arama had held a meeting with the Nakuru County Police Commander Tito Kilonzi over the matter.
“MP Arama and I have met with County Police commander over the issue and we hope to find amicable solution” said Gikaria.
The Nakuru Town East Legislator also revealing that they will have a meeting with County Commissioner Erastus Mbui on the same.
The MP was however optimistic that there will be reduced crime since the inception of Kazi Mtaani program in Nakuru East and Nakuru West sub counties.
He once again sounded a stern warning to a few individuals using the Bobaboda sector to cause havoc through criminal activities.
“The few using the Bodaboda sector to cause crime will be dealt with” said Gikaria.
