The available boda bodas had also doubled the normal fares.

Musa Twiine, a boda boda rider in Bwaise told Chimpreports the operation led by traffic officers “was so abrupt and started as early as 6:00am.”

He said majority of the motorcycles were impounded because motorists were carrying more than one passenger.

“Sometimes passengers cannot afford hiring a boda boda from stage to the city centre. So they prefer to share the costs with another passenger,” said Musa.

This comes after the Executive Director, Kampala City Council Authority; Jennifer Musisi warned all boda boda drivers that by the end of June no motorcycle will be allowed in the city centre in a bid to get rid of congestion.

However, opposition Reform Party chairman, Robert Ndyomugyenyi condemned the act, saying KCCA would be torturing motorists “who have tried to find a way of survival in a country with high levels of unemployment.”
