The National Cohesion and Integration Commission achieved a landmark step on 6th December 2021, following a successful Boda Boda symposium that culminated into signing of the Political Decency and Peace Charter by the members of the Boda Boda Association of Kenya. The said riders committed to uphold peace before, during and after the 2022 General Elections.

During the event that brought together representatives of more than 1.5 million boda boda riders across the 47 counties, NCIC re-affirmed its commitment to the #ElectionsBilaNoma campaign reiterating that the boda boda sector is critical in promoting peaceful co-existence during the electoral process.

In his speech, the Principal Secretary for State Department of Interior Dr. (Eng) Karanja Kibicho, who was the chief guest paid a glowing homage to the Boda boda safety Association of Kenya for being in the frontline in the war against electoral violence. He was however quick to note that due to their huge grassroot presence, the sector was most vulnerable to malicious politicians eager to cause havoc and violence in the country.

“I urge all members of the boda boda sector to say no to political hooliganism and choose to build our country as patriots,” he added.

His words were reiterated by the NCIC Chairman Rev. Dr Samuel Kobia CBS, who called for collective responsibility and lauded the already existing partnership between the Commission and the Boda boda safety Association of Kenya.

The event also brought together other guests including the President of the Bodaboda Safety Association Mr. Kelvin Mubandi, Chairpersons and Members of Commissions and Independent Offices, Development Partners such as the UNDP, European Centre for Electoral Support (ECES), amongst other dignitaries.
