They further states that Ugandan traders are being denied their freedom to trade freely with the nationals.


“Ugandans are not supposed to bank big sums of money, drivers are paying unnecessary taxes compared to the nationals and in case of a problem a Ugandan has nowhere to report,” traders told Chimpreports on Tuesday morning.


According to Mr William Katende, the National Secretary for Uganda Bus Drivers and Allied Association, the situation could be a breeding ground for retaliatory attacks on South Sudanese in Uganda.


However, the Ugandan police have advised the traders to remain peaceful and avoid acts of violence as government investigates their allegations.


Mr Katende said government should “help these people by providing them with a small startup capital as support” to avoid bloodshed.


“Doing nothing to help these traders will lead to increase of idleness and crime rate in this country,” he added.


The Chairman Bus Drivers and Allied Association, Hannigton Kiwanuka had previously warned the Ugandans in S. Sudan to avoid moving at night and to always have their Identity Cards with them as a way of protecting their lives.


Police have since deployed intelligence personnel in areas dominated by South Sudanese especially Kampala to beef up their security.
