Boda boda riders in Mutungo region on Monday afternoon were given reflectors by Roke Telekom as a way of fighting rampant crime in the area.
In their effort to curb crime, Kitintale Police Station have registered over 125 boda boda rides from Mutungo Hill for easy identification.
According to the Officer in Charge, Rose Kigozi, labelled reflectors, which were provided, create a difference from the rest of the cyclists thus enabling identification.
“Since boda bodas are the biggest means of transport in the area and they help us (Police) in curbing crime, many people love secure environments and we are trying to achieve that,” she said.
Kigozi further advised the motorcyclists to always make use of the reflector jackets because they signal trust and credibility.
“Any boda boda rider who won’t wear a reflector will be treated like a stranger to the neighborhood and will be observed more closely by residents and security teams,” She added.
Speaking at the same event, Patrick Nkole, the LCI Chairman Mutungo Hill called upon other authorities to join police in cracking down criminals in the locality.
