Each one of them was presented with a valid licence. This is the second group to benefit from the programme which she started last year. Last year, about 400 others benefited from the same.

Speaking at the Thika-Sub County Stadium Grounds where she led the graduation ceremony, Ng'ang'a said that the programme was aimed at empowering as many youth as possible so as to create employment in the constituency. She said that the bodaboda business was a very integral venture. She assisted them to form a SACCO that they would use to save money and grow their businesses.

 She promised that the programme will continue into the remainder of her term in office so that as many bodaboda riders as possible to benefit.

On the fight against illicit brews, Alice said that they would not relent and called on the area chiefs and the police to continue with the fight. She lauded the recent swoop that was carried out at Fulilia Bar and those neighbouring it where a large consignment of spirits were impounded by the police led by the area chief.

Nominted MCA Mary Mwangi who had accompanied the MP asked the bodaboda riders to work with the authorities to weed out criminals who hid within them to commit crime. She added that theirs was a crucial venture and they should not let criminals to tarnish their reputation.
The bodaboda riders created a colourful scene as they made a grand entry into the stadium on their way to the venue. The MP rode on a motorbike to show the world that from now hence forth, it was safe to ride on a bike.
