As Millard Ayo reports, the speaker has revealed that there are several members of parliament who use bodaboda operators to drop them to parliament buildings, a situation he says is worrying.
The speaker has raised concerns over the decision by some parliamentarians to adopt the culture saying that it may paint a bad picture among the members of the public who may develop a negative perception about them.
"Spika wa Bunge Job Ndugai amewataka baadhi ya Wabunge wanaotumia usafiri wa Bodaboda kwenda Bungeni kuwa makini kwakuwa usafiri huo sio salama sana, pia amewataka kujiuliza endapo Wananchi wakiwaona kwenye Bodaboda watatafsiri," Millard Ayo reports.
Loosely, this means:
The speaker of parliament Job Ndungai has urged members of parliament who use Bodaboda services to travel to parliament buildings to be careful as that means of transport is not safe. He has urged them to consider how members of the public may perceive them if they saw them using the bodaboda services.
This situation is definitely a stark contrast to Kenya where members of parliament use a fleet of vehicles now and then and it is unheard of for a Kenyan member of parliament to be seen using public transport, of course with the exception of campaign period where they may want to woo voters.
