A Joint task Force
(JTF) has impounded dozens of motorcycles in Kampala metropolitan areas for defying
the recent presidential directive which banned them from operating beyond
On Wednesday this week President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in his
nation address directed that boda-bodas should to stop operating beyond 2pm, saying
that boda-bodas should do their work of carrying cargo and finish in the effort
to fight the spread of COVID -19.
While addressing journalists on Friday at the media centre, Fred Enanga, the police spokesman said police within Kampala metropolitan
areas has impounded 191 motorcycles since yesterday.
He says JTF impounded 119 motorcycles from Kampala metropolitan south, areas of Katwe,
Kajjansi and Kabalagala, 89 motorcycles from Kawempe, Maganjo and Kasangati the
Northern side of Kampala, and 83 at Jinja road, Ntinda, and Mukono areas.
Enanga said that
these motorcycles have been kept and police won’t give them to the owners because
they have the potential to defy President Museveni's directive again.
//Cue in: "we have kept them …
Cue out… owners.”//
Bosco Buziba, the chairman boda-boda century
in Kira Municipality says that most boda-bodas that were impounded are
those that were found carrying cargo like food.
He calls on president Museveni to
consider adding them more time to operate saying that some of them are being
caught up when they have traveled long distances and are returning.
