Government in a closed door meeting held yesterday resolved that Boda Boda riders must be deleted from the capital if traffic flow is to be regulated under the newly announced ‘Smart City’ campaign.

The move comes after government banned street vendors from operating on the roadsides of the capital.

Analysts have however expressed their comcerns with how the new government efforts will likely worsen the unemployment crisis as many youths involved in these informal sector schemes are likely to be left redundant.

Meanwhile, government say after Boda Bodas are phased out of the city, efforts and focus will be now laid on taxi drivers operating in the capital. The Government plan is that taxis strictly operate in the upcountry instead of flooding the central business district.
