Bolt Axes 5,000 Drivers on Non-compliance, Safety Concerns
By KABUI MWANGI
Digital ride-hailing platform Bolt has dismissed at least 5,000 drivers in the past six months due to non-compliance and safety-related matters as it moves to tighten its grip on the market through enhanced brand imaging.
The firm, which says it has dedicated over Sh20 million to bolster its safety features and measures, stated that it will continue to permanently block both drivers and riders, reported for any misconduct, from accessing the platform.
