Recently, it was reported that some of the KCCA officers were beaten up and their vehicles damaged as they were trying to confiscate the goods of the vendors who were found unlawfully carrying out the trade.

Yesterday, Monday, KCCA enforcement officers together with anti-riot police officers patrolled various streets of Kampala warning whoever was found selling items illegally on those streets.

At around Nakivubo road near Owino market, vendors were forced to run away immediately after seeing KCCA officers being escorted by a group of policemen.

At Kafumbe Mukasa, phone dealers who always station themselves by the road side, ran to the nearby buildings with their merchandise in the fear of being arrested.

Peter Kawuju, the KCCA publicist, came up and warned the vendors against returning to the streets that KCCA was rebuilding its force with which it was going to maintain order in Kampala.

Most of the traders who have been affected by this exercise are mostly those who are dealing in clothings, shoes and other edibles since they have been targeting people shopping for Christmas.
