On 4th March 2022, a lady driving along Forest was involved in a Traffic Accident with a Bodaboda ( motorcycle). In no time her motor vehicle was surrounded by other Bodaboda riders. The lady was attacked physically, her dress was stripped off her, she was sexually assaulted as she screamed in sheer terror in futility. This is just one of the many incidents that have faced numerous motorists who have been in the same situation leaving them traumatized with little to no recourse.
Bodaboda riders have recently been linked to a wave of criminal activity in Kenya ranging from Robbery with violence to Sexual assaults.
This is why we are calling on the concerned institutions and government agencies to look into:
Requirements for a licensed boda boda rider
1. Licensing of boda boda should be implemented immediately, renewable yearly upon vetting..
2. A license should be strictly issued to 18 years and above.
3. They must submit a current good conduct certificate
4. They must have undergone the road safety training and first aid training
5. They must be a Member of a Registered Association
6. The license must be revoked indefinitely upon involvement in any criminal activities.
7. Create an app for rogue boda boda riders accessible to the public
8. They must have a tag indicating their full name and license number.
The change will;
1. Create safety to the vulnerable in the society.
2. Make it easy to trace rogue riders.
3. Equip them with skills to ride safely on the roads.
4. Help them maintain and follow due process on matters accident
5. An app listing rogue riders will help the boda boda transport apps to select and sign in their riders.
6. Each transport app with boda boda riders will be required to take their riders through reporting procedures and Rule of Law.Read more

It shouldn't matter the platform you give your voice too!!!! Its your VOICE that should matter!!!!! If it takes a million signatures i have EVERY faith we will get it done!!!!!! ******
As many of you have seen on a post now going viral, regarding two dogs. On seemingly one meter length chains, in sub zero temperature/ snow outside. Many of us have spoken to RSPCA England/Wales. Only to be told, that as much as the conditions are no way ideal, they aren't breaking the law. As the animal has a wooden shelter and a water bowl and food.
PLEASE BE AWARE THE CHARITIES ARE DOING ALL THEY CAN WITHIN THE LAW
I now believe its about time we become the voice for the voiceless and fight for better living rights for all dogs living in such atrocious conditions.
Im now calling upon Parliament, and requesting new animal abuse laws be put in place, similar to Americas Libre's law, ensuring no animal is left outside in extreme temperatures (0 degrees or below and 32 degrees or above for any longer than half an hour, and cannot be kept long term outside in these conditions regardless of outside kennel shelter. im also asking them to make laws on tethering more specific, currently there is no rule to the length of a chain somone may keep an animal on, this needs to he changed.
Dogs should either be in a secure garden, or if teather temporarily for exercise the teather should be at least 4/5 times the length of the animal it is being used for, and only used in the need of supervised exercise as shown by the incident of a dog tethered in the garden of UK home died after accidentally hanging himself over wall, prompting calls to never leave dogs tethered and unsupervised.
I also call for punishement of animal abuse to be stricter, animal ownership bans are not providing enough consequence, and have on multiple occasions lead to the banned owner being found to simply replace the animal unlawfully. Any animal cruelty should be met with a consequence that ensures the crime is not only taken seriously, but sets the precedent to all UK residents that animal cruelty and neglect is no longer going to be over looked and accepted as it has been, all animal abuse should be met with a permanent ownership ban, and at minimum a suspended sentence.
Please stop overlooking the welfare rights of animals. Read more
As it appears social media platforms such as Instagram will not view this as a problem and want to fix it, I and many others want to. It's often that images such as self-harm, suicide, death, rape etc are posted quite frequently on social media. I want to stop this, I want to protect vulnerable children and adults from the images as well as support the people who are uploading them so they can receive the help they need. This doesn't only affect us but them too. I have seen things I cannot begin to describe, and children as young as 8 can see these even by accident. I have reported, blocked and tried to contact these social media platforms and nothing. Apparently, this is okay, and it is NOT okay. Help me to get the word out to social media platforms so we begin the change and keep vulnerable children and adults safe.Read more
regulations are either inadequately enforced or widely flouted. Treasury says it is investigating 33 cases investors, sidestepping FIRB regulations to buy established property is driving a backlash from would-be testing of foreign buyers and purchases and a toughening of regulations by the Foreign Investment Review Board.
