Boda boda riders build a 95 million estate in Nanyuki

Nanyuki Boda Boda Sacco (Nabosa) is set to be a proud owner of houses valued at Ksh 90 million in Nanyuki Town, Laikipia town from their initial Ksh 50 a day contribution.

According to Nation, the motorcycle operators came together in 2011 and formed a chama with an aim of members borrowing money to buy spare parts or bail themselves out in case they were arrested by the traffic police which later grew to helping members buy new motorcycles.

The house project started two years ago after they saw an advert on TV on a similar project being implemented by Kitengela boda boda operators says Mr Waithaka, who is the chairman.

The project is at an advanced stage, with roofing in progress on the work that began in July this year. Some space has been left for playgrounds, a commercial centre, an elevated water tank, a septic tank and internal roads.
