ask geneva; font-size: small; line-height: 200%;”>It is alleged that KCCA confiscates goods from the traders most especially, here at 7:30am accusing them of blocking the way where the vehicles of KCCA are supposed to pass yet the traders paid money and were given permission from the KCCA itself to vend their goods from 7.30am to 9.00am.

Nasaka Eve, 25 years, a trader from Kawempe who sells passion fruits, said that KCC treats them as if they are not citizens’ of Uganda.

She elaborated that KCCA no longer brings containers to collect garbage and due to their reaction, it gave them a notice “starting from January 2, 2104, each trader will bring his/her own polythene bag to put waste goods or rubbish”.

KCCA Publicist, Peter Kawuju, said that the authority had beefed up their enforcement teams to help get vendors off the streets during the festive season.

They have also been joined by the police in clearing vendors off the busiest spots in town to reduce congestion and create order.

KCCA insists it is illegal to sell items from the streets but the traders say that it is the most convenient place to do business.
