Boda boda riders sue Ruto for causing them psychological trauma

The Kenya Kwanza administration is being sued by a group of boda boda operators who claim they were excluded from government plans.

The boda boda riders contend in court documents obtained by Citizen Digital that Kenya Kwanza launched a campaign that was primarily focused on the empowerment and improvement of the lives of those involved in the boda boda and Mama Mboga industries during the time leading up to the 2022 General Election.

In reality, the riders claim, the Kenya Kwanza administration has subsequently “peddled a narrative that the bodaboda and Mama Mboga wo/men are comprised of the strictures of the current political government, while the same is utterly false and untrue.”

The court documents state, “THAT the people engaged in boda boss business to earn a living suffer massive financial losses, in the future irreparable harm to their goodwill and business signatures” as a result of the contested statements made by members of the first respondent political science party.

The Kenya Kwanza tagline has allegedly caused antagonism from Kenyans’ unhappiness, depriving boda boda and Mama Mboga company owners of their money, according to a petition filed by Malindi boda boda operators Linda Jamii and others.

The petition continues, “In addition, the statements made by members of the First Respondent political party that the current executive branch of the Kenyan government is made up of Mama Mboga and Boda Boda women and men subject the people engaged in these businesses to psychological trauma owing to the reduction in their source of income and hostility of the Kenyan people who are clearly dissatisfied with the government’s inability to bring down the cost of living.”

They now demand that the government refrain from speaking about Mama Mbona and Bodaboda, arguing that doing so would threaten to infringe upon the rights and basic freedoms of the petitioners, as demonstrated

The petitioners claim that since Kenya Kwanza, which is equivalent to over Ksh.426 billion, uses the phrase, the incomes of those working in the boda boda industry have decreased by almost 32%.
