Eli Mwenda, a lifestyle, menswear and travel content creator forced to delete Bolt Taxi Ad from his Gram Feed after being called out for promoting a brand that is allegedly ‘unbothered’ of the multiple safety concerns raised by thousands of users countrywide.
The ride hailing app has for at least a year faced fierce criticism of unresolved cases of theft, hostile drivers and assaults, the most recent public case being an abduction incident of two girls in Westlands linked to the taxi service.
Below are some of the comments on his Instagram account prompting him to delete the post.
Below are some of the Kenyans online reactions after Eli Mwenda Bolt Taxi AD.
Beingsomebodysmum:👏👏👏👏Can we also talk about those who endorse very shitty hospitals 👏👏👏👏👏👏Yeessss call them out on their garbage 👏
Tuchi:Mnapika Eli Mwenda leo haha ata hamjali akona skin care routine?
Felly Laylow:Get your bag bruv….f*ck all the noise
Mukami Wairimu:👏👏for once kenyans are holding influencers accountable for the brands they are promoting.
Lordheremes:😂😂only holding them to accountability cause it was two women who were kidnapped…if it was two men we all know nobody would be bothered but okay
Misedamiseda:Tukimaliza hapa tuende politicians
Beyonder 001:You guys realise these drivers have all the taxi apps right? But I do get the concern.
Elvis Gits:Clear as day that the company isn’t doing well,nowonder they need him to promote it
Flavia Chege:Kenyans are slowly waking up. Irresponsible brands and inconsiderate influencers must be held accountable.
Halakejoe:Eli is better than this… he’ll be deeply concerned and apologetic of this ad. Bolt should just walk away..why aren’t other hailing apps taking advantage of their mess..ama we just rely on our ‘kawaida’ tuktuks and nduthis
Noel Alazarus:My sister too had a terrible experience with bolt. A rider argues that the amount displayed wasn’t gonna be the final amount and that there were extra charges and doesn’t go ahead to say how much. My sister goes ahead to cancel the ride,books another and the first guy forcefully shows up alongside the other one. He refuses to leave and takes the bike key from the later reason eti ametolewa kwa line lazima alipwe. @bolt_kenya is such a pain in the ass. Please tell everyone to avoid this bolt if they value their safety
