Another incident involving rogue Boda Boda Riders assaulting a female driver along Forest Road has been reported today.
The incident is said to have happened today along Forest Road Drive in Parklands.
A young woman today was accosted by motorbike riders on Forest road, you can see them actually groping and rough handling her. We have as a country allowed bodabodas to be a law unto themselves. Her screams of terror and fear are a telling story of how we invalidate women.

The TikTok video shows an irate crowd of Boda Boda Riders ambushing a hapless lady who is still in the car pleading for rescue.
The events that led to these thugs yanking her out of her car and smashing her windows are unclear.
Incidents of Boda Boda Riders banding together to harass motorists who have been in minor accidents with them have been on the rise.
The trending video has angered thousands of Kenyans on social media as they call for actions and regulations against the boda boda industry.
The video of the lady being harassed on Forest Road due to the boda accident. How did we get this low? If we so readily oppress one another… are we so badly scarred that we've such little respect for each other? Boda riders need to be kept in check. Uber style accountability
