Vendors in Kabale Municipality are up in arms against the proposal by the authorities to compel them to dress in uniforms. Last month, Kabale municipality and district security committee resolved to introduce the uniforms for vendors.

According to the authorities, the move is aimed at ensuring proper hygiene among vendors and ease their identification. There are over 200 vendors mainly dealing in fruits in Kabale municipality.

However, the proposal to compel them dress in uniforms has not gone down well with the vendors. Sylvia Kankunda, a fruit vendor says the move is uncalled for. Gloria Amutuheire, another vendor says that they have reliable information that the move is aimed at failing them.

Amutuheire says the authorities plan to impose on them strict conditions to make it impossible for them to operate in the town center.  However, Sentaro Byamugisha, the LC III chairperson, Kabale Central Division, says they took the decision after consulting the vendors.
