Kenyans living in Ukraine can now breathe a sigh of relief after being evacuated weeks after the start of the Russian invasion.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs said the 26 Kenyans made it to Lviv, the town bordering Ukraine and Poland. This was with the help of a WhatsApp group created by Kenyan Students in Ukraine and named ‘Kenya Evacuation’.
In other news, a section of bodaboda riders has now regretted the criminal act where operators assaulted a lady driver after being involved in an accident on March, 4.
Some operators were seen with stickers on their backs with a message, “We Are Sorry”. This comes after a public outcry that saw Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i and President Uhuru Kenyatta acting swiftly on what has been termed as ‘rogue’ sector. 16 riders were detained pending investigations.
For Matiang’i, he says politicians are to blame for unruly behaviour in the bodaboda industry because they involve the operators to disrupt normalcy during their political rallies.
But Deputy President William Ruto, the biggest facilitator of SMEs; Mama Mboga and Bodaboda operators, has held the opinion that there are always bad apples in every sector and that should not warrant such condemnation.
What measures should do you think should be taken to regulate the bodaboda section in Kenya?
