The crackdown on the Boda Boda sector entered its first day today following president Uhuru Kenyatta's order issued yesterday. The clean up exercise is set to remove culprits who perpetuate criminal activities within the sector thus tainting the image of the country both locally and abroad .
The president's decision followed an ugly incident which generated uproar not just in Kenya but also across the world. A group of motorcycle operator sexually harassed a lady at Forest road in Nairobi this necessitating the need for a clean up within the sector.
However, the force with which the police officers are implementing the directive has become a cause of concern among Netizens.
For instance a video shared by Mutembei TV featured police officers chaining an operator to his motorcycle. The operator could be seen crying as police argued with a woman who came to her defence .The video has attracted diverse reactions from Netizens with many condemning the police for the force that they are using to implement the order issued yesterday.
