, NAIROBI, Kenya, Mar 26 – Starehe Member of Parliament Charles Njagua has lost a bid to have boda boda operators allowed to access the CBD.
Judge Roselyn Aburili dismissed the case by the lawmaker – popularly known as Jaguar – as incompetent.
Justice Aburili threw out the case saying the legislator had failed to prove how the rights of the motorcyclists had been infringed following the ban.
Jaguar had implored the High Court to reverse the decision by the Nairobi County Government on grounds that it was discriminatory and will lead to loss of livelihood by many youths who depend on the motorcycles.
Justice Aburili held that the county has the power to enforce laws it deems fit to restore the “glory” of the capital city.
