Boda boda riders from Bungoma County have vowed to cycle to State House, Nairobi while preaching peace along the way.

Led by their chairman, Polycarp Musila, the boda boda operators say the move will help unite Kenyans who are divided along political and ethnic lines.

The operators further say Bungoma Governor, Ken Lusaka, has offered to foot their meals and accommodation expenses throughout the four-day journey that is set for Monday, August 15th.

They add that the Governor has promised to organize a meeting between them and President Uhuru Kenyatta so that they can talk about peace and integration among Kenyans.

According to the riders, their one-day stay in the capital will be catered for by the President.

They will then embark on their journey back to Bungoma on Saturday, August 20th.

eDaily’s attempt to reach Governor Lusaka for comment bore no fruits as phone calls went unanswered.
