Boda boda operators form anti-crime unit

06 September 2014, 17:14 Joseph Njung’eh

Thika - Boda boda operators in Thika town have formed a group that would be dealing with criminal gangs that target them at night.

The more than 100 operators and members of Kiandutu Youth Motor Cycle Association (2TKY) formed the anti-crime unit following an upsurge of criminal activity among the operators.

The Association Chairman, Kimemia Mungai, said fighting criminal gangs and cartels amongst themselves is one of the agreements that all members have to abide to.

He said the move has seen criminal activities decrease in the town as criminals identified by the association members are reported to law enforcement agencies.

Kimemia said the group members took the initiative after they realized that criminal activities within the slums were making it impossible for boda boda operators to operate at night for fear of attacks that sometimes lead to death of loss of their motorcycles to the criminals.

He added that every member is supposed to contribute KES 200 weekly for welfare.

The Association has a constitution and a structures that includes a chairman and discipline master, enabling them to deal with wayward members.
