Boda bodas being inevitable transport means and yet the major cause of accidents

When you get the chance to visit Kampala, Uganda’s Capital City, you may notice that boda bodas (commercial motorbikes) are like ants cruising in and out of an ant hill. boda-acciden

It seems like the unemployment problem in Uganda is forcing many youths to resort to riding these boda bodas with a noble cause of searching for income. Many youths end up riding these without training or even getting licences permitting them to engage in boda boda riding for income.news013px

However, this has increased accidents thus injuring and leading to death of many people. It is so absurd that even when such sad stories are broad casted and printed in news papers, the boda boda riders never learn to become cautious.

Additionally, customers also at times can’t avoid using these boda bodas due to various reasons such as;

  • They are flexible during rush hours, these can get through traffic jam very easily and quickly get a customer to his or her final destination.
  • Taxis which are the public means of transport are so dirty. Not only are they dirty, but also some even have bed burgs, no one wants to carry a bed burg in his or her home.
  • I can’t forget how taxi conductors can congest passengers and yet expect to be paid the usual amount of money.

This pushes people away from using taxis to opting for boda bodas, even when they are aware of the reckless behavior of their riders who always seek to use pedestrians’ pavements therefore displacing them.3 victims of bodas


Can you imagine a boda boda rider trying to over take a speeding car? To them everything is possible and this imagination has led to terrible accidents.

I recommend car motorists to stop over speeding because there are many road users. Not only humans use roads but also animals need respect while on roads. “Stop and give way” action will save many lives. Boda boda riders need to respect traffic rules. It should be an individual responsibility to care for one another while on the roads regardless of who each person is.
