“The system is intended to help traders be in position to clear all fees and make declaration on goods for three days before reaching Mombasa port to simplify the work of verifies,” said the Assistant Commissioner Trader, Stephen Magera.

According Magera, this system will help traders save time by paying for all the charges and making orders from Kampala.

“After five days they can get their goods without having to move to Mombasa,” he added.

KACITA spokesperson Isa Ssekito has appealed to the traders to acquire more computer skills and learn how to use the internet since the new policy requires using a computer especially with verification at the border and making orders.

However, some of the traders have seriously opposed this system saying it is almost similar to PVOC.

Speaking to one Julius Tibaleka, a trader on Zaina Textiles arcade, he encouraged his fellow traders to oppose this system.

“This is similar to PVOC only that it has been given another name to confuse traders,” he alleged.

Other traders complained on the security for their goods as they are being transported saying some get lost before reaching Kampala.
