Matungulu MP Stephen Mule has enrolled 56 bodaboda riders into driving schools so as to get licenses to drive cars. The event was carried at the Matungulu CDF offices in Tala where Mr Mule said he had spent Sh500,000 to enrol the 56 bodaboda riders in collaboration with Universal Driving School in Tala.
Mr Mule urged youths to not allow themselves to be misused by politicians especially during this campaign period, while also calling on leaders to ensure that they give the youths what they deserve adding that they must be nurtured because they are the future leaders. He further lashed out at 'rogue' police officers who have been demanding for bribes from bodaboda riders, putting the officers on notice saying failure to stop the vice they will have no place in Matungulu.
"Today is a remarkable day here in Matungulu, I have successfully registered 56 bodaboda riders in driving schools, which has costed us 500,000 shillings. I am appealing to our leaders to give the youths what they deserve because they are the leaders of tomorrow," he said.
The MP also hit out at the Jubilee government for harassing Mombasa governor Hassan Joho saying that they are planning to lock him out of the August elections but as opposition leaders they will not allow the government to pin down opposition leaders. "The Jubilee government must stop harassing governor Joho. Kenya is a democratic country," said Mr Mule.
