Traffic warns unregistered boda-boda owners

Author : | Published: Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Traffic accidents caused by motorbikes or boda-boda in Juba have reduced since the beginning of this month, according to the Director of Central Equatoria Traffic Police.

However, Col Kon John Akot says boda-boda riders who have not yet registered their motorbikes will not be allowed to move inside the city.

Boda-bodas are used by criminals as gateways, police say.

The traffic chief told Eye Radio’s Dawn program that the traffic police are working with the public attorney to reduce crimes.

“If you have not registered, and you have no number plate, the traffic police will not allow you to move inside the capital city. In this case you will be arrested,” he said.

“Your boda – boda will be with us till you come and pay the fine, and pay for a license. If you don’t come and waited for long time, we will refer the case to the public attorney and your boda-boda will be sold and the money will be deposited in the account of the public attorney.”

The chairperson of South Sudan Boda –Boda Association, Abraham Jok, told Eye Radio’s Dawn show that boda-boda riders are obliged to respect the traffic regulations.
