Here is why you should be careful with companies giving motorcycles on credit.
They are hiring hitmen on borrowers.
I am a reporter from a local radio station in Bungoma town. Boda boda riders from Musikoma and other parts of Bungoma county are crying over increased rate of theft cases and murder from motorbikes given to them on loan by **** credit company. They feel that the company gives out the motorbikes to them and organizes for them to be taken back through stealing and killing.
Brian Wafula,18 and Dennis Makokha 23 all lost their lives last month by being kidnapped and killed by unknown persons and their motorbikes acquired on loan from **** credit taken away. Many of the boda bodas that we spoke to said that Watu credit does not mind following up the scenarios where people who own their motorbikes are killed under unclear circumstances.For instance, Dennis was killed by being stabbed on the neck and his body dumped in a water ditch at Lumboka next to Life care Hospital. Brian was also deceived by a non-suspecting customer from Musikoma, only to be found the neck day having been killed and his body dumped at Makutano. Both motorbikes had trackers because they are from **** credit company but despite that the company has never made any efforts to follow up the story. The boda boda operators said that new motorbikes from the company with “F” number plates are still being stolen especially and particularly those acquired on loan from that company. Motorbikes that are bought fully are not stolen. The company gives out the motorbikes on loan at Ksh 15,000 where one is supposed to pay Ksh 400 daily.
Our efforts to reach out to **** credit offices in Bungoma town today were futile after the staff members in those offices, located opposite Bungoma governors offices refused to talk to us. They insisted that we talk to the headquarters from Nairobi. They also took our pictures and tried to record our voices thinking we are amateur media practitioners. The government must intervene to assist save lives.
