Members of the National Assembly Security and Administration Committee will visit Thailand, to benchmark on how to combat crime and insecurity plaguing the growing bodaboda industry. Kenyan Members of Parliament (MPs) are planning to travel to the South East Asian country for a benchmarking exercise on how to combat the rising insecurity in the boda boda sector.
According to the Committee’s chair Paul Koinange, they chose Thailand because the country has effectively managed and cotrolled their bodaboda sector despite millions of Thais who have more motorbikes and taxis than Kenyans.
“My committee is planning to travel to Thailand to also learn more, benchmark about boda boda because places like Thailand they have more motorbikes,” MP Koinange said.
The Kiambaa lawmaker revealed there are plans by the government currently underway, to roll out a program to address the rising road safety challenges caused by the over 1.6 million bodaboda operators.
