"Washikwe" Reactions As Bodaboda Operator And Passengers Were Spotted Doing This.

Road accidents have increased in the country and latest data released by National Transport And Safety Authority,NTSA showing a worrying trend. The data released shows that road fatalities increased by 25% as of September 20,2021 as compared to the same period in last year. The data reveals that 927 pedestrians,213 drivers,331 passengers,288 pillion passengers,63 pedal cyclists and 738 motorcycle rides were killed in road accidents over the same period.

Bodaboda operators have been blamed for a long time for reckless driving,overloading compromising their lives and other road users. A photo has emerged which was allegedly taken along Oyugis-Kendubay Road of a bodaboda operator overloaded with three passengers.

The most peculiar thing about this photo is that the passengers are also loaded with sandals hindering the limited space so that the last passenger hangs dangerously from behind.

This is a risky behaviour and NTSA and the road traffic should look into the matter Early enough to avert premature deaths caused by such risky behavours. Look at the reactions below of Kenyans.

NTSA regulation puts that only one passenger should be carried by a bodaboda at a time. More than one passenger is a traffic offence.
