Migori County will target 15,000 bodaboda personnel that operate within the county in the ongoing bodaboda registration that kicked off on Monday across the nation.

Speaking while touring the Migori Huduma Centre to oversee the operation, Migori County Commissioner Mr Meru Mwangi said that so far they have registered 500 bodaboda operators.

“Our daily target is 250 bodaboda operators per day so that we can achieve our set target by the end of the process”, noted Mwangi.

He urged all the bodaboda and private riders to use the time allocated and register for their own benefit. Meru noted that the exercise may likely take 60 days but called upon the bodaboda riders not to wait until the deadline to do so.

The administrator said the government had waived the ksh 5,800 fee payment and it was important for the bodaboda operators to utilize the waived period to register themselves.

He said the purpose of the fresh registration was to establish the number of bodaboda operators in the country in order to establish better rules and regulations.

Mwangi pointed out that so far the process was running smooth and called upon all the bodaboda operators to register and help the government serve them well.

All we need from the bodaboda operators is their original Identification Card (ID) and KRA Pin. Meru also added that those that will have NHIF will have an added advantage. 

The Commissioner urged the bodaboda to observe road safety to minimise accidents that keep on claiming the lives of innocent Kenyans.
