Speaking to Uganda Radio Network after the arrest of Kampala Lord Mayor, Erias Lukwago and other politicians, Kaheebwa said the police do not want any inconvenience caused to the business community in downtown Kampala. This followed a flopped meeting between the Park Yard Market vendors with Lukwago and city MPs Moses Kasinbante, Mubarak Munyangwa and Allan Ssewanyana over the planned eviction of the vendors.
Kampala Capital City Council Authority Executive Director Jenifer Musisi has appealed to parliament and all the other organs and agencies of parliament to shift Park Yard market from its present location,
A section of the Nakivubo Parkyard Market vendors have accused the leaders of their Kampala United Parkyard Cooperative Savings and Savings Credit Society (KUPYCSO) of being behind the December 4, 2013 market fire.
A day after fire razed down Park Yard market in Kampala, pockets of smoke were visible as well as a thick choking smell of burnt clothes. Visible too, are vendors heckling, requesting for any contribution from passersby as well as lamenting their ordeal.
