Boda Boda Safety Association of Kenya  has condemned  an incident where some of the boda boda riders were recently stoned and injured at the Central police Station.

The association’s Chairman Kevin Mubadi says officers stoned them and took away their motorbikes.

Mubadi  says the the act has painted the riders with bad image and that the police should  bring to book the perpetrators.

More than 100 riders are currently in police custody following a police crackdown that started last week and 600 mortobikes confisctated the last three days.

‘‘Its true that a section of our rogue members stoned the police and took a mortobike  ,  let the police do their investigations and  take action against those who stoned the police.’’ He said.

Mubadi however, slammed the  police  for  arresting those who  are innocent and not connected with the incident.

‘’I want to ask  OCPD Central to move with speed and  release those who were arrested without any offence because we know they were acting  out of anger,we cant have 600 mortobikes in Central Police Station .’’ He added.

Meanwhile Cityhall maintains  that no boda boda will be allowed to  operate within the CBD .
