The Nanyuki Shopping Mall in collaboration with the Municipal Council of Nanyuki donated reflector jackets to boda boda operators to motivate them to obey the new traffic laws.
“These reflector jackets will help you to maintain discipline in the road as the new traffic rules entails of you,” said Edward Waithaka the Chairman Nanyuki Shopping Mall.
He told them that new act was not meant to punish or oppress them but to reduce accidents in our roads.
Waithaka who is also a retired cop said that Kenya has witnessed massive deaths of people as a result of road accidents, adding that the new traffic rules will indeed bring sanity on our roads and save lives.
The Mayor, Isaac Mathenge, told the cyclists to remain peaceful and desist to be manipulated by politicians as they hunt for votes in the region.
“Be serious in your job and render good services to your customers so that you can as well be on the right side of the law. Don’t allow politicians to misguide you. Do your job for the best interest of our nation,” said Mathenge.
The two addressed the operators outside the Nanyuki Shopping Mall over the weekend before proceeding to the Laikipia District Community Library where they donated books worth KES 50 000.
