The vendors have displayed their goods outside the shops and on the streets. They keep singing the prices and urging the customers passing by to buy from them”.

In 2009, Kampala Capital City Authority evicted all the vendors who were operating on the streets of Kampala and in the New Tax Park giving them places like Usafi market and St. Balikuddembe market in order to reduce on the congestion in the city.

However, fresh reports show that the vendors have brought back the congestion which KCCA wanted to stop in 2009.


These vendors are now occupying spots near Gazaland building, down town near the New Taxi Park, Old Taxi Park, Qualicel bus terminal, and Mini Price building.

“Traders operating inside the shops are so unhappy about this because they say that it has become hard for them to get customers this festive season since vendors have stormed the streets selling similar products and at cheaper prices,” Nabulya narrates.


Customers in most cases find it hard to enter the shops when they can actually buy from the streets because they have a mentality that goods inside the shops are more expensive.

Robert Kalumba, KCCA deputy spokesperson, has resounded the warning to the vendors working on the streets affirming that that “they should leave as soon as possible because they were given gazetted areas where they should operate from instead of turning back to the streets”.
