Jaguar opposes boda boda CBD ban by county government


Nairobi, KENYA: Starehe Member of Parliament, Charles Njagua popurlay known as Jaguar has opposed the move by Nairobi county government to ban boda boda operators from the Nairobi Central Business District.

Speaking during a press conference at parliamentary buildings on Tuesdays, Njagua said that such move by the county government will re-ignite the security lapse in the city following the fact that unemployment among the youth is one of the major reasons for the increase of crime in the CBD.

He called on the government through the Ministry of Interior to deploy patrol officers in every street in the CBD so as to deal with the various incidences of insecurity being witnessed.

He has also appealed to the Ministry of Youth Affairs to bring back the NYS programme which was halted, so as to get the youths off the street.

Njagua also faulted security agencies manning the CCTV cameras in the city center for failing to execute their mandate properly resulting to increase of crime in Nairobi.

Crime upsurge being experienced in the CBD has forced the Nairobi county government to form a special squad that is expected to deal with the marauding gangs.
