Boda boda riders in Trans Nzoia this morning held peaceful demonstrations protesting exorbitant fees charged by the County Government.
The angry riders said despite paying heavy taxes the state of roads in the county is pathetic.
They also lamented that Kitale town county askaris have been arresting them unprocedurally.
“Here in Trans Nzoia county we are paying 300 shillings boda boda operation fee monthly while in other counties the range is between 500 to 700 shillings a whole year,”they said.
The riders delivered their grievances and petition to Trans Nzoia County Commissioner Samson Ojwang and demanded that the monthly fee be suspended until talks between them and the Governor Patrick Khaemba matures.
The County Commissioner urged them to maintain peace as they negotiate with the county government on the issues they raised.
