Humble Boda Boda Rider With A Master’s Degree…..State of Joblessness In Kenya

Education, we were meant to believe, was the key to success. Parents push their children to pursue higher education in the false belief that they will land lucrative well paying jobs.





David Ananda studied in St Paul University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Divinity and was awarded with a scholarship to further his studies at the Prestigious Presbyterian College and Theological Seminary in South Korea for his masters of Arts in Christian Education.


The first born in a family of four completed his studies and returned back home to search for a job that has remained a mirage to date. With no option David asked his brother to lend him his motorcycle to ferry people in order to fend for himself.

This is how he got himself in the boda boda business. He, along with five other riders, park their motorcycles along Land Mawe in industrial area were they wait for clients. David shared his frustration as a boda boda rider in the busy Nairobi streets;

“Many motorists have not accepted boda as means of transport. Motorcyclists are perceived as a nuisance and some can hit one deliberately.”

He also faults City Council Askaris for mistreating them. David together with the other boda riders have initiated a parcel delivery service that they are in the process of formally registering.

He can be reached on this number: 0713 864 174

With all due respect to his hard work in school and college, no one goes to theology school and comes out looking for a job. He should just try to plant his church. The boda boda story will actually act as a testimony to bring more "clients" to his "business". Once again, all due respect.

MY GOOD FRIEND, YOU TOOK TO A WRONG PROFESSION, TRAINING ! RELIGION DOES NOT PROVIDE ANY MEANING FULL EARNING ! UNLESS YOU BECOME A CON, LIKE ALL THOSE MANY NAIROBI PREACHERS, WITH THEIR OWN CHURCHES!
HOW MUCH DID YOU SPEND TO STUDY ALL THAT, AND WASTE ALL THAT, WITH ALL THE MONEY ? WOULD IT NOT HAVE BEEN BETTER TO USE THE MONEY TO START BETTER THINGS, LIKE BUYING YOUR OWN MOTOR CYCLE !

success come from anything however small or ugly it might look, its all depends on attitude and focus. All is not in vain since the fruit of his education has yielded an idea of registering a company what the essence of education if you cant generate an Idea with it. Education is no a prerequisite to getting job in current society its more of knowledge empowerment to initiate employment ideas.
