While addressing the media at Central Police Station , the Kampala Metropolitan Area police spokesperson, Ibin Idi Ssenkumbi said that if these allegations continue, police will not hesitate to deal with the perpetrators as provided by law.

“We don’t have any selfish interest in Boda Boda registration and in any case if there are those doing it, they are doing it on personal basis,” Ssenkumbi explained.

Ssenkumbi therefore revealed that police uses Boda Boda riders as spies and intelligence officers but not to fight the registration exercise.

“Police have a very clear system of collecting intelligence information and therefore registration of boda bodas can not in any way hamper police operations,” stressed the Kampala Metropolitan Area police spokesperson

Ssenkumbi further denied allegations that police officers own Boda Bodas, adding that information about the motorcycle owners can only be obtained from Uganda Revenue Authority.

‘’There has been allegation that police stage manages the sale of impounded Boda Bodas during auctioning but this is not true because it’s open to the public,’’ added Ssenkumbi.

The Kampala Metropolitan Area police spokesperson therefore made it clear that police will embrace the Boda Boda registration exercise because their interest is law and order.

“Police shall not hesitate to take action against any one or group that goes around spreading pounded rumors which tarnish the institution and different officers,” warned Ssenkumbi.
