Kampala City has this morning been awash with confusion as law enforcement agents of Police have carried out massive Boda Boda impounds across the city.
Police has been rounding up “anything” on two wheels be it private cyclists or delivery agents.
In a statement from the KCCA released on Saturday, Boda Bodas were given strict guidelines of operation in response to the directives from Cabinet and the President to allow them to operate again as Uganda forges a path towards recovery from the novel coronavirus.
The Boda-boda free zone was pronounced along the following boundaries; Wampeewo roundabout- Jinja Road to Kitgum House junction- Access Road- Mukwano Road right down to clock tower. Kafumbe Mukasa road- Kisanyi Road- Mackay Road – Kyaggwe Road- Watoto Church- Bombo Road- Wandegeya- Hajji Musa Kasule Road- Mulago Roundabout- Kamwokya Junction- Sturrock Road- Prince Charles Drive- Lugoggo bypass- Jinja Road- Wampeewo Roundabout.
It was unclear in the communication whether that would affect cyclists who were making deliveries before the allowance to carry passengers. In an unexpected twist this morning, private cyclists too who use motorcycles to move have as well suffered the same fate as they were asked to park their motorcycles.
KCCA is expected to make a statement and clarify the nature of motorcycles allowed to continue operating with the Central Business District.
