Ibin said that 3 of the impounded buses were sent to the transport licensing board in Kampala in conjunction with the ministry of transport and works to be cleared while 2 Post buses are still held at Mbarara police station pending clearance.

The impounded buses had passengers but police helped them get on other buses to their destinations.

Ssenkumbi urged all buses owners to clear with the transport licensing board to have route chart which guarantees them to know the point of operation.
