Three suspected bodaboda men were on Monday arrested for allegedly burning the vehicle of the Kisii deputy governor Joash Maangi last week along Bomet Narok road.
The official vehicle of Joash Maangi was on Wednesday torched by angry bodaboda youths after it hit and killed one of them who was carrying a passenger in Ololulung’a, Narok county.
The boda boda rider identified as John Saanyo and his eight-year-old son were hit by the Toyota Landcruiser, killing them on the spot.
According to the reports, the accident which happened at around 7.30 P.M involved Mr. Maangi, his driver Stanley Gitonga and two aides on their way to Nairobi from Kisii.
The incident was confirmed by the Narok South Sub County Police Commander Chebe Kiambere involving a Toyota Prado of registration number 45CG 028A.
A statement by the county government alleged that the bodaboda rider was overtaking at a blind corner and neither had a reflector jacket nor a helmet despite being dark. It also claimed that the motorbike lacked an indication light which would have shown his intention to take a corner.
“We have also established that the BodaBoda rider was overtaking at a blind corner and was also not wearing a helmet or a reflector and yet it was already dark. His motorbike was also lacking an indication light that would have shown his intention to take the corner,” read the statement.

“The county government, therefore, warns all the BodaBoda riders to refrain from being used by Politicians to settle political scores in exchange for small tokens. And anyone caught, stern action will be taken against him/her,” said Ongiri.
