Education Chief Administrative Secretary Zack Kinuthia has urged bodaboda operators to unite and form Saccos in order to benefit from National and County Government funding.
The CAS who attended bodaboda leaders workshop in Kitengela said the bodaboda operators contribute immensely to the economy.
Zack also urged them to support amendment of the constitution through Building Bridges’ initiative (BBI) which he said will proceed as planned since youths have expressed their support.
The CAS also held talks with youth leaders from Kajiado and Narok Counties about the initiative agenda.
“We the youth from all the wards are spreading the message on importance of the BBI, we are supporting the amendment of the constitution,” he said.
Deputy governor Martin Moshisho said the county government leadership supports the initiative; he called on the bodaboda operators to support the agenda.
The administration is working on reducing congestion in Kitengela town through upgrading the old Namanga road to decongest the town.
CEC Trade Alvin Kimani said the bodaboda programme will consist of trainings that will lead to formation of saccos which empowerment funds and trainings will be channeled through.
CEC Education Jeremiah Ncharo said the county has a bursary kit that supports bodaboda riders in driving colleges.
The county has partnered with NTSA, National Oil and other stakeholders to support the bodaboda industry.
