Kampala Traders to Battle Vendors on Friday

Kampala’s business community under their umbrella body Kampala City Traders Association (KACITA) have vowed to engage street vendors in running battles if they remain on the streets by Friday this week.

The angry traders who were gathered at JBK Hotel in the city center said they were determined to physically exchange with vendors that would be found in front of their shops by Friday.

“Despite sending several warnings to them since December last year, unhealthy check there has been no response but the numbers only growing, nurse ” noted KACITA Chairman Everest Kayondo on Wednesday morning.

“We have not made substantive sales since December, we can’t allow this to continue that’s why we have allowed them only one day to vacate,” said Kayondo.

“We have allowed them this time after negotiations with the Inspector General of Police (IGP) and the Office of the President who promised to have them off the streets.”
