The President warned the riders will not be allowed to perpetrate crimes that include harassing pedestrians and motorists.

 “We want to support the bodaboda business but it is not a license for a Boda Boda to do drive-by shootings. And most definitely it is not a license for you to strip and remove dignity from our women.
